Cory McIntyre Takes Over as New Superintendent

In June, District 11 introduced Cory McIntyre to families in the Anoka-Hennepin School District through a video they put online. He's a familiar face to many. Before he became the superintendent of Osseo Area Schools, four years ago, he had served as Anoka-Hennepin's assistant superintendent from 2016-2019.

"So to come in and be able to hit the ground running and really get to work on the things we need to to move forward is super helpful," McIntyre said.

This summer, he visited a number of schools around the district. He met with staff and students, and saw lots of changes as a result of the 2017 bond referendum.

"It's really fun to see the end product of that commitment from our taxpayers back at that point in time,” McIntyre said. “And now to see how much more improved this is and the impact that has on learning, and just the overall culture of the school for the staff and for our families too."

Last week the Minnesota Department of Education released its latest accountability report. Test scores in the Anoka-Hennepin Schools, were down by more than10%, since 2019, in the number of students who met the standards for math, reading and science.

"I think we're still seeing the impact of COVID in our results, and I'm hoping that we're turning the corner on that now," McIntyre said.
