Pine City Schools Superintendent Annette Freiheit has taken the superintendent position with Winona Area Public Schools and has resigned her position in Pine City.
Freiheit, who grew up in southern Minnesota and went to school at Winona State University, said she is taking the position in order to be closer to her family.
“I will miss Pine City and all of its wonderful people,” Freiheit said.
At a special meeting on May 28, the Pine City School Board accepted Freiheit’s resignation and made plans to fill her position.
Board members discussed whether the position should be filled by an interim superintendent, or if the school district should attempt to find a permanent replacement.
They said that both internal and external candidates were interested in the interim position.
