Zydowsky picked to become next Menomonie schools superintendent

MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An area school district has picked a new district administrator.

Menomonie School Board President Colleen Davis says Cadott District Administrator Joe Zydowsky will start as Menomonie School District Administrator on July 1. Davis says Zydowsky has a really good handle on where the Menomonie district is headed, that he's intuitive with both kids and staff, and that he's the right fit for the job. Davis would not comment on what Zydowsky will be paid, saying that will be released once the district has a signed contract. She expects that will happen at the next school board meeting, which is scheduled for April 28.

The decision was made Thursday night. The three finalists for the position were Zydowsky, Cumberland Superintendent Barry Rose, and Rick Williams, who is Assistant Director of Administrative Services at Region 10 in Dallas, Texas. Current District Administrator Chris Stratton is about to retire. Davis says Stratton's contract expires June 30. She went on to say that Stratton has been in the district for 30 years, and that Stratton feels that it's the right time for new leadership in the district.
