From MPR’s Tom Weber:
The Minnesota Association of School Administrators has named a new executive director to take the place of Charlie Kyte, who is retiring.
Gary Amoroso will take the helm of the group this summer after 10 years as superintendent of the Lakeville school district. Amoroso also served as MASA’s president during the 09-10 school year. This week he informed staff at his district of his departure.
Kyte, a former Northfield superintendent, isn’t a household name, but he is one of the best-known voices on education matters at the Minnesota Capitol. He has lobbied for 10 years on behalf of school superintendents and administrators (commuting most days between his home in Northfield and St. Paul). He has testified before countless legislative committees, and has been frequently quoted in the media, including on MPR News.
He last appeared on Midday just a few weeks ago.
