PETERSBURG-AK A new team of administrators is heading up the school district in Petersburg. It’s the first year in town for the superintendent and the principals in the high school and middle school. While the new year is just getting underway, Superintendent Rob Thomassen has been on the job since early summer.
Thomassen and his wife, Susan, came to Petersburg from Hillsboro, Oregon. He previously worked as superintendent of the Nenana school district in Alaska from 2005 through 2008. Thomassen has also held administrative, technology, and teaching positions in Oregon, Idaho, California, Saudi Arabia and Australia.
