Monticello extends interim superintendent job offer to Dr. Michael Favor

The Monticello Public School District has officially extended an offer to Dr. Michael Favor, executive director of schools and student services for Robbinsdale Area Schools, for the interim superintendent position.

The board came to the decision Wednesday night after conducting a second round of interviews with Favor and David Marlette, former superintendent of the Watertown-Mayer School District.

Favor graduated with his Bachelor of Science Degree from North Dakota State University in 1990, and earned his Masters from Hamline University in 1998. He recently picked up his sixth-year licensure at St. Cloud State University.

Favor worked as the dean of students in the St. Louis Park School District until 2001, before becoming the assistant principal and then principal at Minneapolis North High School until 2007. He was then the principal at Robbinsdale Cooper High School from 2007 until 2013, before taking his current position as executive director of schools and student services.

The board will hold contract negotiations with Favor on Monday evening, with a special meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Monticello Board Room to vote on his approval as interim superintendent of the Monticello School District.
