Duluth school board picks new superintendent 26 Jan 12

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – The Duluth School Board wants to name its interim superintendent to the permanent position.

The Duluth News Tribune reports the board voted 4-3 Tuesday to enter into negotiations with Bill Gronseth for a three-year term as superintendent.

Gronseth has been interim superintendent since Dec. 19, when the board put former Superintendent I.V. Foster on administrative leave. Foster, who had been working without a Minnesota license required for the job, resigned earlier this month.

Gronseth previously had been assistant superintendent.
