Message from School Board President Rob Reinhoffer

Dear Shorewood Community Members,

Marty Lexmond accepted the position of Superintendent for West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. We knew he applied, and we've been working to ensure continuity and a smooth transition in the event he received and accepted it. Marty will continue as our Superintendent through the end of the school year, and will continue to guide our district and maintain progress for all our initiatives.

We have two important tasks ahead of us: first, we want to ensure there is continuity through our transition to a new Superintendent; and second, we want to immediately begin our search for the next Superintendent for Shorewood.

The selection of the right Superintendent for Shorewood may take time, so we have already requested proposals from several search firms and have created a timeline to accomplish all that needs to be done. We will share more information about the search process at our next Board meeting.

In order to maintain continuity, we will engage, on a part-time basis, a talented and experienced professional, Jack Linehan, to provide support and ensure a smooth transition.

Jack served as Shorewood's Superintendent from 1992 – 2003 and had been SHS Principal from 1985-92. He knows our culture, is familiar with the qualities that make Shorewood unique, and can provide immediate assistance.

Jack will work several hours per week alongside Marty through the end of June, providing support to the administrative team and staff, and offering input to aid in the search process. We anticipate Jack will begin immediately after Spring Break. He will likely continue after Marty's departure to help orient our new Superintendent.

We are confident this transition will be smooth and seamless for our staff, students, and community. Current work and initiatives of the district will continue according to established timelines.

We thank Marty for his commitment to Shorewood the past three years and wish him well in his new role. As we gather information and formulate timelines, we will continue to keep you informed.

Thank you for your continued support of our schools,

Rob Reinhoffer
Shorewood School Board President
