During a special school board meeting on Tuesday, March 28, the board tendered a contract offer for the superintendent’s position to current secondary principal Ryan Moser.

The committee reviewed seven applicants before making the motion to offer Moser the position. The board, as allowed by North Dakota century code, went into a closed door executive session to talk about the prospective candidates. They called the public back into the board room and proceeded with the motion and a roll call vote.

The motion was passed with a unanimous decision, with all four board members voting in favor. School board president Mike Knuth was not present for the meeting. However, his vote is only needed in the event of a tie.

The board began accepting applications immediately after current superintendent Larry Sebastian submitted his resignation at the February board meeting.

Moser has been with the school system for a few years and knows the students and knows faculty. There has not been a timetable set for Moser to accept or decline the position, the board still needs to draft the specific offer.

A committee was then formed to narrow down a suitable candidate to fill the vacant principal’s position. From the board, Krista Faller and Eric Andress were joined by educators Joey Ericsson and Paul Jamison, who volunteered to join the search.

The board initially was advertising for an elementary principal, but with Moser having a standing offer for the superintendent job, the board decided to fill the high school principal position. Heather Ebert, business manager, said that right now it may turn into some sort of dual position, but that has yet to be decided.
