On Thursday night, the Fowlerville Board of Education selected Mr. Matthew Stuard to be the next Superintendent of Fowlerville Community Schools pending the successful negotiation of his contract.
Stuard is currently the Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Mason Public Schools. He was chosen over the other finalist, Paul Flynn, Superintendent of the Sandusky Community Schools.
“Several Board members commented that it was a difficult choice between two outstanding candidates and thanked them for their interest in the position,” stated a release from the district. “It was Mr. Stuard’s emphasis throughout the process on academic improvement that became the deciding factor for many Board members.”
Tim Stein, Regional President for Michigan Leadership Institute commented, “It was the Board’s focus on the selection process that led them to their choice and what they feel is the best fit for their district. They started with twenty candidates and through the interview, stakeholder feedback and site visit process, made a difficult choice between two outstanding candidates.”
The position became vacant when longtime Superintendent Wayne Roedel resigned in October in order to become superintendent of the Greenville Public Schools in Montcalm County. Former Brighton Superintendent Dave Pruneau has been serving in an interim role since then.
