A new era for Saint Peter Public Schools began today as new Superintendent Bill Gronseth officially began his duties as the top administrator for District 508.
Gronseth, who had previously served as Superintendent for Duluth Public Schools since 2012, takes over for Jeff Olson, who served the 2019-20 school year as Interim Superintendent for Saint Peter Public Schools. A native of Duluth, Gronseth earned his master’s degree in education from the University of Minnesota-Duluth and has a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
"I am thrilled to be officially serving as Superintendent for the Saint Peter Schools," Gronseth said. "Many thanks to Dr. Olson and the amazing administrative team for all of their support during the transition.
"I'm looking forward to continuing my conversations with staff, families, and students in the coming days!"
Bill and his wife Deanna, who recently moved to St. Peter, have two grown children.
