Welcome Dr. Jeff Hauswald

Superintendent Hauswald and Board
The Boone County School Board held a public meeting this morning to approve and introduce their choice for new Superintendent. He is Dr. Jeff Hauswald of Bloomington, Indiana.
 
Dr. Hauswald accepted the offer of employment by signing his contract in front of district administrators today.
 
His work ethic came from his agrarian roots, having grown up on a farm. His interest and eventual love of education came from his father who was a science teacher for 35 years. Dr. Hauswald's favorite subject is Mathematics. He went to Indiana University, majored in Math with the goal of becoming a Math teacher. As his teaching career began to progress, a superintendent who became his mentor, identified leadership qualities in him and put him on a leadership track.
 
He was President of the Indiana Urban Schools Association for 5 years. In his previous position as Superintendent Dr. Hauswald says he is proud of the work he accomplished on behalf of the students and teachers in the district. He describes himself as a change agent. He raised $250 million to implement universal early childhood education and took beginning teacher salaries from $40,000 to $60,000.
 
"I try to be a servant leader, positional authority doesn't get you anywhere. The reality is you get power by giving it away. Our teachers and administrators are the experts in their fields of work. They don't work for me, I believe in working with my staff and for the students, that's how together accomplish the goal of accelerated learning opportunities for our students," says Hauswald.
 
The search for a new Superintendent began 4 months ago with a Superintendent Search Screening Committee which included teachers, administrators, students and community members elected to the committee to work along with the Boone County School Board.
 
Superintendent Matt Turner retires at the end of this school year. Dr. Hauswald starts on July 1.
