With more than 20 years of administrative experience with Greendale Schools, superintendent Dr. Kim Amidzich brings skill, intelligence, thoughtfulness and understanding to her position, according to colleagues in the school district. 

She is a graduate of Greendale Schools and a community member herself with an understanding of village history and community pride for its schools. Amidzich blends this knowledge with her deep understanding of educational best practices, equitable access and opportunities for students, curriculum and character development processes to lead Greendale Schools into the future, said Kitty Goyette, communications director at the district.

Amidzich was named interim superintendent following the unexpected resignation of the previous superintendent in late 2019. Amidzich’s appointment as permanent superintendent was approved by the Greendale Board of Education as the world was closing its doors last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

She has provided steady leadership and support to the school administrators, teachers and support staff as the district launched remote learning for the remainder of the spring semester, Goyette said.
