ONE10 Admin Team Hiring Updates
The administrative leadership will have a new look next school year and the hiring process to find replacements has begun…

The ISD 110 School Board has selected a search firm to conduct the hiring process for the next superintendent of Waconia Public Schools.  The Minnesota School Board Association will be conducting the search and will be seeking input to create the superintendent profile. Our website will continue to be updated with the latest information. Right now, MSBA is gathering information about our district. MSBA plans to meet with board members on March 16th. 

We have conducted the interviews for the new HR Director and we have made an offer to a very qualified candidate.  We are very thankful for the quality of the candidates that applied for this position and are very impressed with the candidate chosen.  The new HR Director name will be announced in the next MailChimp newsletter.  

We are starting the search for the next Director of Teaching & Learning.   With Kathy Oliphant's retirement at the end of June we will need to have a replacement in place by July 1.  We are extremely grateful for all the amazing work that Kathy has done at ONE10 to establish an excellent T & L Department that serves our students, staff and community exceptionally well. Kathy Oliphant will be dearly missed.

NEW NEWS…. Todd Swanson has submitted his letter of resignation and his last day in the office at ONE10 will be April 1, 2022.  Todd has taken a job with SWMetro. We are so thankful for Todd’s incredible dedication and caring approach to his work at ONE10.  Todd provided a high level of experience, wisdom and knowledge as the Director of Finance at ISD 110, and he will be deeply missed.  We have started the search for a new Director of Finance.  Please help recruit and communicate the opening to anyone you think may be interested.

Devine update… last week I shared that I was a finalist for the Minnetonka Superintendent position.  I fully intended to retire as a superintendent from ONE10 and only applied at Mtka to support the search firm and current superintendent’s request.  Once the finalists were announced, I realized I was potentially the front runner.  After a lot of reflection, praying and talking with my wife, Kathy, we decided that this was not the retirement job I was looking for, so I removed myself from the Mtka candidacy.  I look forward to the employment options I have for retirement and staying in the wonderful community we love,
Waconia….WE Are ONE10!!

Wishing All at ONE10 a Wonderful and Relaxing Spring Break!!
