Howard-Winneshiek Superintendent Search Seeks Community Input

The search for the next superintendent of the Howard-Winneshiek School District includes two ways this week for the public to provide their input.

Current Superintendent Ted Ihns will be leaving Cresco to become  Superintendent for the Indianola School District starting July 1st. The search firm, McPherson and Jacobson, based in Omaha, is leading the search process to find his replacement.  The executive research recruiters are conducting a stakeholder’s survey that people in the school district can participate in through this Saturday, April 16th.

Company consultants will also host a Community Input Meeting this Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the high school auditorium in Cresco, open to anyone who wishes to provide input on what qualities patrons want in the next superintendent.

Last week, we reported that the deadline for applications was April 7th, but that was based on inaccurate information provided by school officials. The deadline for applications to replace Ihns, who has been Howard-Winneshiek Superintendent since 2017, is midnight, Wednesday, April 13th.
