Story By Lex Gray


RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander School District spent more than four hours Wednesday night interviewing three candidates for next year's vacant superintendent position.

Current superintendent Dr. Roger Erdahl will retire at the end of June.

The candidates are Jean Broadwater, current superintendent of the Houston School District in southeastern Minnesota, Kelli Jacobi, Rhinelander's Director of Curiculum and Instruction, and Tom Johansen, D. C. Everest's high school principal.

The board expects to go into closed session around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and deliberate well into the night.

When they do make a decision, it will likely not be made public until negotiations have been finalized and the candidate accepts the position.

We will keep you updated as the boad moves forward.
