The Search for a Superintendent

  • Dr. John Thein is currently serving as the interim superintendent of Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS). In July, he replaced Valeria S. Silva -- who served as superintendent for the last seven years of her 30-year career in the district. 

    The Board of Education is conducting a nationwide search for a new leader.
