Perpich Center for Arts Education Executive Director and former Eden Prairie Schools Superintendent Dr. Curt Tryggestad announced June 20 that he has accepted a new position as the superintendent of Pine City Public Schools.
His last day at Perpich will be determined soon. Tryggestad has led the agency since August 2017. This is a homecoming, of sorts, as Dr. Tryggestad was a principal in Pine City from 1997-2003.
Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley is a Minnesota state agency that seeks to advance K-12 education throughout the state by teaching in and through the arts. Minnesota is one of only a handful of states in the nation with a dedicated state agency supporting arts education.
