Dear Southmont Schools families,

This evening Dr. Shawn Greiner was approved as the new superintendent of West Lafayette Community School Corporation. Dr. Greiner has subsequently submitted his resignation to the Board of Trustees, effective January 28, 2022.

We know that a mid-year change in leadership at our district level isn’t ideal, however Dr. Greiner, the Board of Trustees, and our administrators are committed to a smooth transition as we begin to look for a new superintendent. There will be a public Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday, Dec. 23 at 7:45 a.m. to approve the selection of a search firm to assist the board in the superintendent search, and with the selection of an interim superintendent.

During the advertising of the position, we will be conducting online surveys to gather community input from staff and stakeholders. Moving forward, we will communicate updates from the superintendent search at our monthly public board meetings, via email, and on our website.

We thank Dr. Greiner and his family for their dedication to Southmont Schools over the past nine years, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.


Brad Monts
President, Board of Trustees
