Welcome Ginger RedlingerConcluding its search for a new superintendent, the North Marion School District Board of Directors is pleased to announce and welcome Ginger Redlinger as the new Superintendent of North Marion School District. Ms. Redlinger will take over the position of Superintendent as of
July 1, 2017 replacing retiring Superintendent Boyd Keyser.

The Board officially offered Ms. Redlinger the position and finalized a 3-year employment agreement at their Special Board Meeting held on March 21, 2017. We had an outstanding field of candidates for our Superintendent position. The seven member board and eight member screening committee including administrators, teaching staff, classified staff, and community members followed an extensive superintendent search training and process working hard to narrow down the field to 7 candidates to interview.

A team of board members visited Ms. Redlinger’s current District, Oregon Trail School District where they observed and interviewed numerous staff and community members about her leadership style, honors, awards and contributions to the educational arena. The three member panel had an excellent experience meeting her constituents and staff. Following site visits, we held a finalist forum with our stakeholders (staff and community). We listened, reviewed input to be sure we were headed in the right direction. Redlinger emerged as the right leader for North Marion School District.

Board Chair, Dr. Patrick McArthur quoted, “Ms. Redlinger has all the qualities and qualifications that the board, staff and community had selected.” The Board is confident Ginger Redlinger is the right choice to serve our community and build on the District’s mission to inspire excellence throughout the schools.

Ms. Redlinger lives on a farm only five turns and about 5 miles as the crow flies from North Marion School District campus; and has called this area home for the last twenty years. Her commitment and involvement with local businesses, clubs, families and farms will be an asset to North Marion School District. “I see my own professional experiences paired with a team of like-minded professionals, my commitment to equitable outcomes for all students matched to a community that values the aspirations of each of its members, and lastly, that we share my hope that schools will prepare students to study or work anywhere in the world they chose and inspire them to return home and raise their families,"Redlinger said.
