The Hamilton School District, currently in the process of hiring a new superintendent, has added a candidate to their list of potential hires after another candidate withdrew his name from consideration.
James Baldwin, the superintendent of Alberton School District for the past 14 years, has been moved onto the list of potential candidates. He replaces Daniel Nicklay of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, who withdrew for personal reasons.
Before moving to Alberton, Baldwin was previously the superintendent of Melstone School District in Melstone. Before that, he was superintendent of the Roy School District in Roy. Baldwin has a bachelor's degree in elementary physical education from Minot State University and a master's degree in administration from the University of Mary.
Baldwin joins three other candidates to replace current Hamilton School District superintendent Duby Santee, who is retiring at the end of this year. Robert Connors, the junior high school principal in Stevensville, Thomas Korst, the assistant superintendent of Havre Public Schools, and Robert Lewandowski, the superintendent of St. Ignatius School District, are all vying for the position in Hamilton.
Hamilton School District is holding a public meeting for the superintendent candidates on Friday, Jan. 20 from 5-7 p.m. in the Hamilton High School commons area. Interviews will be conducted on Saturday, Jan. 21 in the Daly Den at Daly Elementary School.
The Hamilton School District Board of Trustees is expected to take public comment and make a final decision on the new superintendent on Monday, Jan. 30 during the regularly scheduled board meeting.
