The Sun Prairie School Board hired a new superintendent this week after a previous search ended with the candidate withdrawing, school officials said.
Sun Prairie School District spokeswoman Sarah Heck said the school board had gone through a hiring process and offered the position to a candidate, who ultimately withdrew.
In a letter to school district staff Wednesday, Sun Prairie Area School Board President Tom Weber said the board voted to hire Dr. Brad Saron during a meeting Tuesday night and Saron accepted.
In the board's initial search, which started in February, the applicants were whittled down to Erik Olson and Bryan Davis, and forums were held in late March for the community and district staff to meet the two. There was no input from the community on the decision to hire Saron.
