A Note from Acting Superintendent Heinsma
Dear School Families,
I’m honored to serve our school community in the capacity of acting superintendent as our Board of Education searches for an interim superintendent to lead for the remainder of this school year. Beginning as a classroom teacher, I’ve worked in this district for more than 20 years. My goal is to support this transition and focus on the day-to-day operations, continuing our commitment to outstanding education.
Our school district is built upon a strong, relationship-focused community that truly cares for one another. We’ve rallied to support one another through tornadoes, floods, illness, grief, and so much more. As a member of this community, this aspect is something I’m deeply grateful for and is what has kept my family rooted here.
Now is the time to rally again to move our district forward and to find solutions that meet our growth and capacity challenges. We need to roll up our sleeves and come together in support of something I know we can all agree on: providing outstanding education to our students.
Together, we are RE4 strong.
Amy Heinsma
Acting Superintendent

Superintendent Search
At its November 15 meeting, the Weld RE-4 Board of Education launched two consecutive searches. They are seeking an interim superintendent for the remainder of this school year and a permanent superintendent starting the 2022-2023 school year. 


Interim Superintendent Search Process

The Board of Education announced the finalists for the interim superintendent search at the November 30 special meeting: Rod L. Blunck, Sandy Cosner, David Dude, and Virginia Moon. To read more about each of the finalists, visit our announcements page. The finalists will interview with the Board in a public meeting on December 7. The Board will then select a final candidate and approve the contract at a special meeting December 15. The interim will fill the superintendent role through June 30, 2021.


Permanent Superintendent Search Process

To have a permanent superintendent starting the 2022-2023 school year in place by July 1, 2022, the Board is accepting proposals for a consultant to conduct a full and comprehensive superintendent search that includes community engagement. The Board expects to select a search firm by December 13. Details on the search schedule and process will be finalized once the search firm is in place.    



The timing of Dan Seegmiller’s departure from the role of superintendent helps position the district for a competitive and successful search. While the Board conducts the search for the Interim Superintendent, Director of Instruction Amy Heinsma will be Acting Superintendent.
