Superintendent Schmidt

Dear West Central Area Families,

On July 1st, I  will begin the next phase of my career as West Central Area Superintendent. It is a great honor and privilege to lead a school district which has strong community support and educators and staff members who are second to none. The District has an outstanding reputation for providing students with a high quality education. The community deserves a great deal of credit for the support which it has given its schools over the years. Together, as a community, I know that we can build a system of education that provides all children with the learning experience that they not only need, but can grow and achieve in.

In addition to my life as a Superintendent, my wife, Allison and I enjoy our time with our two dogs and camping in Minnesota. We also enjoy time with our families, traveling, watching football, spending time together, attending church and golfing.

In closing I would like to thank the West Central Ares school district for the welcoming atmosphere, positive environment, and opportunity to serve as the school superintendent. 

 Please feel free to contact me anytime at 320-528-7300 and GO Knights!!
