Charles City Schools Officially Hire Burnight as Superintendent

The Charles City School Board officially hired the school district’s new Superintendent Monday (05.130 night.

The Board met in regular session and approved Brian Burnight to a two-year contract effective July 1st as well as a temporary superintendent contract to begin working for the school district June 3rd. 

Burnight’s approval for a temporary Superintendent contract signals that current Superintendent Anne Lundquist will not return to that role. 

Lundquist announced she would retire at the end of this school year, June 30th. But last month, she was placed on paid administrative leave while the district investigates allegations about unspecified behavior and actions of Lundquist, according to School Board President David Schrodt.

No new details have been provided on the status of that investigation.
