MIDDLETON–The Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District announced the two finalists in the search for a new superintendent to replace George Mavroulis who announced earlier this year that he would retire June 30.

School board president Bob Green said at the board’s regular meeting on Feb. 25 that the recruiting firm BWP and Associates, contracted to assist the district in the hiring process, received more than 30 applications.

BWP and Associates narrowed the pool of applicants down to a dozen which were each interviewed. Six finalists were selected out of that group and presented to the school board, Green explained. The board conducted interviews of the six are narrowed the decision down to two.

Dr. Dave Gundlach and Dr. Dana Monogue are the two finalists for the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District superintendent position, district spokesperson Perry Hibner announced Feb. 26.

“Gundlach has served since 2010 as the Deputy Superintendent in Oshkosh,” Hibner said. “Dave previously worked for nearly 20 years as a teacher, principal, director of technology, and director of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and technology in the Menasha School District.”

“Dana has served since 2012 as the Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning in Elmbrook,” Hibner said. “Monogue previously worked for six years as deputy superintendent and middle school principal in the Waukesha School District.”

The finalists will spend a full day in the district and will meet with various stakeholder groups each on separate days, Hibner explained. They will tour the district services center, visit three schools, and then have dinner with the school board. Gundlach’s visit is scheduled March 7 and Monogue’s for March 11.  

During the school board meeting the board deliberated about how much time they should wait after interviewing the candidates before making a final decision. After some discussion the board decided to schedule two meetings, one immediately following the final dinner on March 11 and another for the next day if a decision cannot be made. 

The board is expected to vote on the final approval of the new superintendent at its regular meeting on March 18 or April 1.
