Dr. Dickhudt will have served nine years when he leaves. He mentioned that the timing is due to the “Rule of 90” in education which allows for retirement by an educator when his age and years of service equal 90.
He said he looks forward to having options for his workday but isn’t certain what pursuits he may enjoy in coming years. His decision was strictly a reflection on his reaching the Rule of 90 and not related to any outside influences, he added.
Supt. Dickhudt arrived in Chisago Lakes with three years experience as superintendent for Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City Schools. He succeeded Darrold Williams, who also stepped down after completing nine years as head of the Chisago Lakes system.
Supt. Dickhudt entered teaching in 1969, first working in Sauk Center . He took a four-year break to serve in the Navy. He was also principal for Ruthton and for Ogilivie High Schools.
