David Dyb of Lodi will be offered the district administrator position for the Iola-Scandinavia School District.
The announcement was made after the I-S School Board returned from closed session following its monthly meeting on Monday.
If Dyb accepts the position, he will replace interim district administrator Duane Braun.
He currently is the principal at Lodi Area Middle School. He previously had been assistant principal and middle/high school principal for Markesan District Schools. Prior to that, he taught at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau School District.
Dyb is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Edgewood College.
He was one of three finalists interviewed for the position. The other two finalists were Cari Guden and Jon Warmke.
High/Middle School Principal Sara Anderson reported that the web filter was changed last Friday afternoon.
“For the most part, it went very well,” she said. “A lot of people did a lot of good work in three hours time.”
Elementary Principal Tess Lecy-Wojcik announced that the school’s Science Fair will be held March 7.
Braun said that an all-county emergency management meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Mishler Room at the I-S Community Fitness & Aquatic Center.
