Bisgard Named Linn-Mar Superintendent

Shannon bisgardAfter thoughtful consideration, the Board of Education is pleased to announce the selection of Shannon Bisgard as the next Superintendent of the Linn-Mar Community School District. Bisgard will begin his new role on July 1, 2018.

During his nearly 30-year career in education, both as a teacher and an administrator, Bisgard has built a strong resume. With 13 of those years spent here in the Linn-Mar district, he has developed valuable relationships that will enable a smooth transition and continued success for our school community.

Bisgard has served as building principal at both Bowman Woods and Linn Grove elementary schools, helping to design, build, and open the latter. After leaving Linn Grove in 2013 to accept a role as Regional Administrator at Grant Wood Area Education Agency, he returned to Linn-Mar in 2015 to become Associate Superintendent. In this latest position, Bisgard has proven himself to be a capable leader, well-poised to take the helm here at Linn-Mar.

The Board is excited about the future of Linn-Mar and has every confidence that under Bisgard’s leadership we will continue to excel in our mission to Inspire Learning, Unlock Potential, and Empower Achievement.
