Dr. Paul Kreutzer, former superintendent of the New Berlin school district in Wisconsin, was selected from among 40 candidaes and seven finalists to become Katonah-Lewisboro’s new superintendent of schools in April, succeeding Dr. Robert Roelle who had resigned on March 1.

Dr. Kreutzer, who took over the superintendent job on July 1, received a five-year contract with a $245,000 salary, which, according to school oficials, is the median salary for superintendents in Westchester in 2011-12. Dr. Kreutzer, 40, set Wisconsin records by becoming that state’s youngest principal and superintendent at 25 and 29, respectively.

The assistant superintendent for business, Michael Jumper, had served as interim superintendent from March until June 30.
