Amy Kortemeyer Named Linn-Mar Superintendent
The Linn-Mar Community School District Board of Directors has named Amy Kortemeyer as the district’s next superintendent.
Kortemeyer currently serves as a deputy superintendent in the Iowa City Community School District, where she has been responsible for overseeing all aspects of teaching and learning and assisting in leading the district-wide implementation of Marzano’s High-Reliability Schools framework.
In addition, Kortemeyer has been a member of the American Association of School Superintendents since 2014. She previously served as both an assistant superintendent, director of elementary schools in the Iowa City CSD, and superintendent for Springville Schools for the 2014-15 school year.
“I am honored and thrilled to have been chosen as the new superintendent of the Linn-Mar Community School District,” said Kortemeyer. “I was attracted to the position because of the district’s excellent reputation and having first-hand knowledge as a former employee. The interview process reiterated what a great place it is. I look forward to working with the school board, students, staff, parents, and community, and am committed to providing all students with an excellent educational experience.”
Board members worked with Grundmeyer Leader Services to conduct the full search. Kortemeyer interviewed with stakeholder interview groups consisting of students, parents, teachers, and community members on March 22.
“Amy has been a dedicated leader throughout her career and has a proven track record of principled, strategic, equity-minded, and collaborative leadership,” said Brittania Morey, President of the Linn-Mar Board of Directors. “With the support and feedback during the interview process from students, staff, parents, and community members, we are confident that Amy’s knowledge and experience, combined with her dedication to student achievement, makes her the ideal person to take the Linn-Mar community forward.”
Kortemeyer will officially begin leading the Linn-Mar Community School District effective July 1, 2023.
