Interim leader to interview for superintendent role

Caledonia — The Caledonia Community Schools Board of Education will interview current Interim Superintendent Dirk Weeldreyer for the vacant superintendent position on December 20.

Dirk Weeldreyer was the only applicant and has served as interim superintendent since June 2023, following the departure of Dedrick Martin. He served in the same role in 2018 prior to Martin’s appointment. 

Since retiring from his superintendent position at Fennville Public Schools in 2017, Weeldreyer has served as interim superintendent in various West Michigan school districts, most recently in Godfrey-Lee Public Schools. 

“The Board acknowledges the profound impact that the selection of a new superintendent has on the entire community and is committed to finding a superintendent who aligns with Caledonia’s values and fosters academic success for all students,” Board President Marcy White said. 

The interview will take place at 6:30 p.m. during a special board meeting in the administration office board room, which starts at 6 p.m. on Dec. 20. CCS Families, students, staff and community members are encouraged to attend. 

The board is not accepting new applications and will decide next steps following Weeldreyer’s interview.
