Pine Island names new superintendent


PINE ISLAND, Minn. (KTTC) -- Pine Island School District has a new permanent superintendent.

The school board Monday night voted interim Superintendent Tammy Berg-Beniak to fill the position.

She says she's going to make changes next school year that will have a large impact on the school district.

Berg-Beniak says the school will be unveiling a new website after the first of the year and will be extending Wi-Fi through the school.

She says the school will also be working to improve facilities and, in light of the school shooting in Connecticut, will look at it's safety procedures.

"We are working closely with the city and the EDA and township representatives to really make sure that we have a unified plan for the district for the city," Berg-Beniak said. "What are the goals so we can be aligned with that?"

Beniak previously worked in the Zumbrota-Mazeppa School District, and was hired as the kindergarten through eighth grade principal last year before becoming the interim superintendent at Pine Island in September.
