MUSKEGO - Muskego-Norway School District Superintendent Joe Schroeder will leave June 30 for a position with the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators, he announced Tuesday.
Schroeder, 45, of Oconomowoc, has been Muskego-Norway superintendent since 2007 and said his five years with the district "have been the highlight of my career. Anyone tracking our progress knows the district is in a better spot in student achievement."
Schroeder was named the 2011 Wisconsin Superintendent of the Year and in 2010 Muskego-Norway received a mastery level Wisconsin Forward Award, a state designation given to organizations for good results in areas like building a highly-skilled workforce and having exceptional organizational management.
Schroeder said he is leaving Muskego-Norway to have an impact on more schools as associate executive director of the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators, the state's professional organization for principals and associate principals.
"I will be focused on directing professional development for the state's school leaders," Schroeder said. "I hope through those efforts I'll be able to expand a positive impact on schools and classrooms throughout Wisconsin."
The Muskego-Norway School Board has not yet come up with a superintendent replacement plan or timetable, Schroeder said, adding he only told the board of his new post Monday night.
