Exira Looking for New Middle School Principal


July 13th, 2012 by admin

The Exira Community School District is searching for a new middle school principal.

During Tuesday’s school board meeting, the board accepted the resignation of Lanny Kliefoth, who plans on becoming a high school principal in another western Iowa school district.  Exira Superintendant Dean Schnoes tells KJAN news that Kliefoth reported that the Nodaway Valley school board had their meeting Monday night and offered the position of high school principal to him, which he accepted.

Schnoes says wishes Kleinfoth the best as he continues to move up the ladder.  They had been discussing the move to Nodaway Valley for awhile before the Exira school board meeting Tuesday.  He says the move to the high school in a bigger district was something Kleinfoth was looking for in his career.

Schnoes says the search for a replacement principal at the Exira middle school has begun and the board would like to have something done within the next week.
