The Lake Mills Board of Education will begin the search for a new district administrator after accepting the retirement of Pamela Streich Monday night.

Board President Richard Mason told the Leader Tuesday, the board will vote next month to hire a consulting firm to lead the district through the search process.

The firm will give a presentation on the process after the next Board of Education meeting Oct. 14.

Mason said the board expects to make a hiring decision by March for the position with someone starting by July 1.

The search for a superintendent is an extensive process involving community input.

“It’s a big process and to do it right it takes time,” Mason said. “We want to get someone who understands small towns. We are in a unique position here in Lake Mills.”
