Dr. Messinger a Finalist for Colorado Job


Bruce Messinger, superintendent of the Helena School District, was announced as one of three finalists for the Boulder Valley superintendent position on Thursday and will continue interviewing for the position on Thursday, April 29th. If selected and he chooses to take the position, Messinger will begin his duties with the Boulder Valley District on July 1.

While I certainly wish Dr. Messinger the best in his interview, it would be a tremendous loss to the District if he were to take the new position.

A potential change in leadership of the Helena School District makes this year’s School Board election even more critical—and over the next few days, I will highlight some of the key differences between the candidates.
