June 25: Dr. Gary Niehaus, Superintendent, Grosse Pointe Public Schools
Dr. Niehaus was hired as Superintendent of the Grosse Pointe Public School System in the spring of 2015. Most recently, he was superintendent of McLean County Unit District #5 in Illinois (13,650 students, 965 teachers, 664 staff, 45 administrators). He started his career as a high school teacher, served as a middle school principal in several districts, as Superintendent in Salem Elementary School District #111 (1,050 students), and then Superintendent for Charleston Community Unit District #1 (3,000 students). His advanced degrees include a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Loyola University, a Specialist Degree in Education Administration, and a Master of Education from Southeastern Louisiana University. He has purchased a home within the GPPSS boundaries and has already started acclimating to the community by transferring his membership to the local Rotary and volunteering with the Grosse Pointe Chamber of Commerce.
Our meeting will be held the day after the School Board is scheduled to announce the school closures included in the new school configuration plan.
