Lake Pend Oreille School District Superintendent Shawn Woodward announced Saturday evening that he has verbally accepted the same position with the Mead School District in Washington.

“While I am excited for the new opportunity and challenge, I will miss working with you all,” Woodward wrote in an email to LPOSD staff. “It has been an amazing last 7 years and I will always think fondly of my time in the Lake Pend Oreille School District.”

Woodward had been a finalist for other superintendent positions in Washington, including the South Kitsap School District near Seattle and the Wenatchee School District.
