CEDAR GROVE, WI (WHBL) - The Cedar Grove/Belgium School District will be looking for a new superintendent. The district’s Board of Education approved Steve Shaw’s retirement Wednesday evening, effective at the end of the current school year.
Shaw, who has spent the last six years of his 41 years in education at Cedar Grove/Belgium, said he has considered this for some time. With turning 64 this year, the time had finally come for his to step down, despite the love he has for the job.
Shaw said his retirement has no connection to the recent sudden departure of the district’s high school principal. Rather, he is confident the district will be fine with Josh Ketterhagen promoted to the principal spot and other district leaders still there.
Shaw added he is most proud of the facility improvements and faculty/staff hires during his tenure in Cedar Grove/Belgium.
The board of education is expected to hire a replacement for Shaw before the start of the new school year next July.
