DE PERE – After three and a half decades in the Wisconsin school system, West De Pere School Superintendent Dennis Krueger will retire.
“After 34 years of dedicated service to the children of Wisconsin — four years as a teacher and 30 years in administration — he plans to retire in July 2024. This decision concludes a chapter of leadership and commitment that has impacted our district in numerous ways,” West De Pere School Board President Jenni Fuss said in a release.
“During Mr. Krueger’s tenure as superintendent in West De Pere, we have seen significant progress and achievements. Some of such include but are not limited to securing property for future growth, management of several construction projects and opening a new school, leading the West De Pere community through a pandemic, creating and implementing the District’s Strategic Plan, improving communication through web design/app implementation, leading process improvements, fostering a culture of ‘leading your learning’ and building relationships within the district/community.”
Krueger left his position in the School District of New London for West De Pere in 2019, where he replaced John Zegers.
Krueger began working for New London in July 2017, after serving as assistant superintendent for the Howard-Suamico School District for 11 years.
He also worked in Shiocton, Neenah, Marinette and Milwaukee during his career.
“While we celebrate Superintendent Krueger’s career, we also express our sincere gratitude for the years of dedication, integrity, leadership and unwavering commitment to the education and well-being of our children,” Fuss added.
