On Monday, February 27, the West St. Paul–Mendota Heights–Eagan Area School Board unanimously approved the selection of Peter Olson-Skog as its choice to lead the district as the next Superintendent of Schools.
Olson-Skog was selected from three finalists who visited the district, met with students, parents, staff and community groups, and were interviewed by the board over the past week. He is currently an Assistant Superintendent in Roseville Area Schools.
The board will now enter into contract negotiations with Olson-Skog, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2017.
Current Superintendent Nancy Allen-Mastro announced her retirement in November 2016.
