Huntingburg- On Thursday night, Southwest Dubois County Schools officially accepted former Superintendent Tim LaGrange’s resignation.

LaGrange announced his resignation to the board in August. He says he will be taking a position with a school corporation in Washington state. 

The search for a new superintendent for the school corporation is already underway, according to Board President Jon Menke.

“There is an individual that the board is very interested in,” said Menke following the meeting, “We’ve spoken to this individual and conversations are continuing.”

The board did not release the candidate’s name. 

Before adjourning the Thursday meeting, Board member John Schroeder shared his thanks to LaGrange for his six years of service.

“I just want to say publicly thank you to Tim LaGrange,” Schroeder said, “(He) served us very well the last several years. I think he did a very good job. I think he’s gotten our school corporation in a place now where we’re very stable, very successful, and we have a lot of right pieces in place. We look forward to continuing this journey forward and wish him luck.”

The new superintendent will oversee four schools in the district: Southridge High School, Southridge Middle School, Holland Elementary School, and Southridge Elementary School.
