Jacobus accepts superintendent post

Keith Jacobus, assistant superintendent for leadership, teaching and learning for Osseo Area Schools, has been named superintendent for South Washington County Schools, starting July 1.

Jacobus has served Osseo Area Schools since July 2010.

"I am excited about the opportunity but profoundly sad to be leaving the Osseo School District," he said in a message to colleagues announcing his decision. "I have been impressed with our work and focus on students and have loved my time working with all of you."

Supt. Kate Maguire will proceed with planning for hiring Jacobus’ successor.
