  • Published in News


The Black River Falls school board has released a statement regarding the search for a new superintendent.  Jill Collins is the acting superintendent while the search is on to replace Ron Saari.  Saari resigned in December.


Press Release:


The School District of Black River Falls is Moving Forward

Following the December 14, 2012 acceptance of the resignation agreement of the

superintendent, the board directed the administrative team, comprised of building principals

and the directors of business services, curriculum and instruction and pupil services, to develop

options for moving forward. The administrative team unanimously recommended naming Jill

Collins, director of business services, as acting superintendent until the new superintendent is

hired. The school board unanimously approved the recommendation and continues with their

superintendent search. We anticipate a new superintendent will be on board July 1, 2013.


acted diligently through the complaint/investigation process with the goal of protecting the

rights of all who were involved and we have a continuing obligation to do so. This has meant

that the process took longer than first anticipated and that communication regarding the

matter was minimal.

It is the board’s priority to maintain a stable and consistent atmosphere

for our school community. Nothing has changed in the classrooms; it is business as usual.


We approach every decision with honesty, trust, fairness, integrity and objectivity. We are

committed to respect the confidentiality of privileged information that is protected by law. Our

first and greatest concerns are the education of our students, service to our community and to

do what is right.

Thank you for your continued patience and respect of the required process. We appreciate our

entire staff’s dedication to professionalism and to our students.
