Osseo Schools Choose New Superintendent
The Osseo School Board selected Cory McIntyre to be the next superintendent of Osseo Area Schools.
McIntyre is currently an associate superintendent in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. He has also worked at other schools in administrative roles across Minnesota as well as part of Wisconsin.
His experience working in one of the largest districts in the state is what some board members say made him the most qualified.
“He does have the large district experience,” says Mike Ostaffe, the Osseo Area School Board Chairman. “He does have special education experience. He has experience across all grade levels. I think he has the ability to lead a large district like us. He will be able to step in and work with our staff, as well as work with our administrators and our parents. We feel he will reach out to everyone in the community.”
The board chose McIntyre over two other finalists.
Working on the Achievement Gap
“The achievement gap is an issue we want to continue to work on,” added Osaffe. “There is issues around our building capacity. There are issues around how we develop new curriculum and what that new curriculum needs to be. We also want to explore how we move in to trade, along with asking the question how we get more people to come in to our schools. Those are just a small handful of subject we want to address.”
Contract negotiations will now begin. Once negotiations are done the board will begin introducing McIntyre to the school community.
They will also start a planning process which will establish a timeline of goals the district would like to meet.
Pending successful contract negotiations, the new superintendent will start July 2019.
