Rhinelander Schools Hire Director of Special Education and Pupil Services
The Rhinelander School District has filled the position vacated when administrator Dave Wall retired at the end of last school year. Maggie Peterson has been hired as new Director of Special Education/Pupil Services. Peterson recently worked in the Northland Pines School District in Eagle River where she was a special education teacher and Director of Pupil Services. She also was principal at St. Germain Elementary School and Director of Instruction at Northland Pines. She also taught at Florence High School and Lincoln Hills. The Rhinelander School District announced a settlement with Wall, who had sued the school district for earnings he said he was owed from a previous contract. The matter was resolved and Wall retired in June.
