New Southern Door School District Superintendent Christopher Peterson is excited to meet you ahead of the new academic year this fall. Peterson began his role this month after serving as Howards Grove’s superintendent for the last 12 years. He also previously held various positions for school districts in Little Chute, Wausaukee, and Kimberly. Peterson is familiar with the success of Door County’s schools during his work with Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) 7, especially Southern Door.
His previous stop at Howards Grove featured not just great athletics but also a focus on aspects like improving test scores, addressing reading literacy, and meeting the needs of its students. Peterson is confident they will be able to do similar things at Southern Door.
He added that having young children in the district will allow him to look at school through their lens and will help him better communicate with parents and make more informed decisions. You can find our full interview with Peterson on our Podcasts page.
