David Bradley of Charles City, Iowa, has been hired as the new superintendent at St. Croix Central School Distirct, which covers Hammond and Roberts.
Bradley will follow Dan Woll, who is retiring after 20 years with the district. School Board President Howard Kruschke said that he and Bradley anticipated no problems reaching agreement on contractual terms.
“We are very pleased that we were able to attract such a qualified candidate from an extraordinary group of finalists,” said Kruschke. “From nearly 30 applicants, we brought back three individuals, each with the capability to be our next superintendent.”
He said Bradley was the overwhelming choice from each of the groups participating in the interview process and the unanimous choice of the School Board.
Bradley brings 33 years in education with 22 years of administration experience to the district. After 11 years as a music teacher, Bradley moved to administration. He started as a principal and athletic director, then moved to the superintendent’s office. For 10 years he served as associate superintendent and business manager in Marion, Iowa. Bradley believes that this strong finance experience allows him to focus more time on student academic achievement.
“We have a very strong school district, but we know we can improve,” said Kruschke. “The School Board is committed to enhance student achievement, better connect with our communities and lead the district through a transition of teaching staff, as many teachers will retire in the next few years. Bradley is uniquely qualified to help us address these challenges.”
