Charles City, Howard-Winneshiek Among Schools with New Superintendents

The new academic year began Friday (July 1) for Iowa schools and a number of north Iowa school districts start the year with new leaders at the helm.

In Charles City, Anne Lundquist takes over as the interim superintendent. Most recently, Lundquist has been a classroom teacher at Immaculate Conception Catholic School in Charles City, but has previously served as superintendent at Red Lake Schools in Minnesota and worked for the Minnesota Department of Education

Lundquist has a one-year contract with the district, which will resume its recruitment of a permanent superintendent later this year. She replaces Mike Fisher, who resigned after four years in Charles City to take the same post in his hometown of Oskaloosa.

The new superintendent of the Howard-Winneshiek School District started his new job Friday as well. Kris Einck, previously the superintendent and high school principal of the South Winneshiek Community School District, takes over for Ted Ihns, who is now the Superintendent of Indianola Schools.

Decorah’s new superintendent is also on the job officially as of Friday. Dr. Tim Cronin was shared superintendent with the Central City and Dunkerton school districts the past two years.

The Mason City School District starts the new school year with a new, first-time superintendent as Pat Hamilton steps into the post after previously serving as Director of Student Services for the Spencer School District.
