Sad news for ISD 709

One of the things I have always complimented Supt. Gronseth for is hiring some very talented administrators. One of my favorites is poised to leave, Dr. Mike Cary, our District’s Curriculum Director. He has applied for the superintendency at Cloquet and he would be a smart agreeable, leader for that District.

I’ve noted in recent months that our finances in Duluth are getting desperate and that the Curriculum Department which Keith Dixon sacrificed in the wake of the Red Plan’s Red Ink virtually wiped it out. Dr. Cary is about to preside over another evisceration of the Department and I can’t blame him for heading somewhere that he doesn’t have to watch his staff evaporate.

This tidbit was in today’s Trib but I can’t find it on the online version.
