New Ulm Sup’t Finalist Forums 25 Mar 13

Two “Community Forums” are being held this week in New Ulm to give District 88 residents a chance to meet the final 2 candidates for school superintendent. The search for a replacement for retiring District 88 Superintendent Harold Remme has been underway since last year, and the 2 finalists narrowed down from the original 15 applications for the position are GFW Superintendent Jeff Bertrang and Houston Superintendent Jean Broadwater. Community members will have the opportunity to ask the finalists questions during the forums this week, which start at 4pm today (MON) and tomorrow (TUE) at the DAC Auditorium in New Ulm. The candidates and their spouses will also be taking tours of District 88 buildings and the surrounding community. A decision on a new superintendent may be made as early as later this week.
