District Blog

This is the official online blog for the Shorewood School District. All content is created and published by Shorewood School District staff. The purpose of the District blog is to disseminate important information to the public in a timely and accurate way. The blog does not publish public comments, but does invite site visitors to submit comments, which are sent by email to District staff. Comments provide the District and the School Board with important feedback from community members regarding the blog posts, and then District staff respond as necessary to the feedback received. While all submitted comments are reviewed, the District does not reply to every comment that is submitted. Thank you for reading our blog.


Director of Curriculum and Instruction Hiring Update

On Friday, November 13, a committee of teachers, administrators and support staff interviewed five candidates for the position of Director of Curriculum and Instruction. Two of the five candidates, Tim Joynt and Bridget Kotarak, were selected to return for second interviews.

Second interviews--in which all staff may attend--will take place on Monday, December 7, from 4-6 pm in the SHS Library. Tim Joynt will be slotted from 4-5 pm and Bridget Kotarak will be from 5-6 pm. The format of these second interviews will include a candidate presentation in addition to a question-and-answer session that will allow staff to submit questions to be asked of both candidates.

Community members are welcome to attend the second interviews, but there will also be a designated community session later that same evening, from 6:30-8:30 pm, during which community members can provide feedback. The format for the evening session will be the same as the 4-6 pm session.

Following the evening session, attendees will have the opportunity to provide written feedback on the presentations that will be used in Superintendent Davis's selection decision. If a candidate is selected, Dr. Davis projects that the candidate's start date will be mid-January to coincide with the beginning of the second semester. If neither candidate is selected, the pool will be reset in January and interview will reconvene in February.
