NEW ULM - Adam Kluver, current principal at Strive Academy in St. Cloud, has been selected as the next Washington Elementary School Principal, according to Superintendent Jeff Bertrang.
Kluver's contract will be presented at the District 88 School Board meeting this Thursday, March 27.
Kluver would be on an 11-month contract (240 days) with a starting salary of $85,552.
Kluver has verbally agreed to the terms, and the district is waiting for his signature and then board approval.
Kluver currently serves as the principal at Strive Academy in St. Cloud, a middle school serving grades 4-8. Prior to that job, Kluver was dean of students at Annandale Middle School and Elementary Principal at Sleepy Eye Schools.
Kluver spent two years as a fifth-grade teacher and eight years as a fourth-grade teacher with Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Public Schools and four years as a third- and fourth-grade teacher with Eden Prairie Public Schools.
He has worked with Response to Intervention (RTI), Professional Learning Communities (PLC), integrating technology into the classroom and building teams to support building and district goals.
In another matter, the School Board is also expected to approve a replacement for the position vacated by Facilities Director Scott Hogen. The choice for the position is Pat Lang.
Lang's contract would be pro-rated for the rest of the 2013-14 year for the number of days worked, and then he would transition to a full-year contract beginning July 1, 2014.
The total district cost is $20,749.95 for April-June 30, 2014, and $82,999.80 for the 2014-15 school year. Comparable costs for the same time for Hogen would have been $20,083.41 and $85,620.04.
