BRF Chooses New Superintendent

  • Published in News


The Black River Falls Board of Education  has agreed on an administrative contract of Superintendent

of Schools for the district.

Dr. Shelly Severson, a present School District of Black River Falls Elementary Principal will start

official duties July 1.

Jill Collins, Director of Business Services, will continue to serve as Acting Superintendent until then.

Prior to selecting Severson, the Board of Education offered an administrative

contract to John Gaier.

Gaier declined the offer after week long considerations.

He states, “The BRF contract offer was very generous and was not at all

an issue in the final decision. It was not the right time for me to leave Neillsville."

Severson replaces Ron Saari who resigned earlier this year.
