Superintendent resignation on hold

Board of Ed working on leadership restructure


**Update Jan. 8, 2019: Northview Public Schools Superintendent M. Scott Korpak may be staying in the position after all. In a Jan. 5 letter to the district and its families, Board of Education President Doug LaFleur said they are working on a proposal to accommodate Korpak’s health challenges. A leadership restructure is expected to be brought to the Board for approval.

In a letter to Northview families sent Dec. 14, Korpak said that “because of chronic physical health issues that have become more problematic over the last couple of months, I am no longer able to maintain the typical schedule of a Superintendent. Because of this I will be retiring from public school service at the end of this school year.”
