Ever since he started his career in education, Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel reflects on the past year the same way: by looking at the people that made it special. During the course of the school year, the district introduced a new Montessori program at Sunset Elementary while navigating through a school walkout in January and a county crippling snowstorm in April. Tjernagel says he hopes to continue the forward-thinking progress they have made over the last decade.
Sturgeon Bay School District recently hired a community engagement coordinator to reach out into the area to form partnerships for future projects. School is back in session on September 4.
