• School Board - Superintendent Search Process

    Superintendent Linda Madsen has announced her retirement effective at the end of this school year. The Forest Lake Area School Board has undertaken the process of finding a new superintendent.

    That process has begun, and the school board has selected the Minnesota School Board Association (MSBA) to undertake the search process. That decision took place at the board's Jan. 19 special meeting.
