It’s back to the drawing board for the Pulaski Community School District after its superintendent finalist decided not to take the job.

The school board unanimously voted Feb. 20 to offer the position of district superintendent to finalist Jason Lau and begin contract negotiations. Lau has been principal of Westwood Elementary School in the West De Pere School District for nine years.

The district announced late Thursday afternoon that it was advised by Lau that he is no longer interested in the position.

Since December, the board has been undertaking a search for a replacement for current superintendent Rebecca Kurzynske, who is leaving June 30. Lau was selected after the board and two advisory committees interviewed six candidates earlier this month.

“The board will continue its superintendent search process in order to ensure the position is filled by a well-qualified candidate,” the announcement said.
