Monte Moffett, who served as assistant superintendent of the Duneland School Corporation for 17 years, is announcing his candidacy for the at-large seat on the Duneland School Board.

“Moffett has devoted his administrative career to students, families, faculty, and staff in the Duneland region,” according to a statement released to the Chesterton Tribune late on Tuesday.

Moffett most recently served, 2013-19, as assistant superintendent for operations and human resources; and 2003-13 as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.

Moffett previously served as principal, assistant principal, and athletic director of River Forest High School, in addition to numerous teaching and coaching positions at other Indiana high schools since 1978.

“Moffett is committed to high-quality education, especially during the pandemic,” the statement said. “He believes the Duneland School Corporation needs to find creative ways to safely continue its world-class and innovative curriculum while maintaining fiscal responsibility for students and staff.”

“Duneland is my home,” Moffett said. “We have lived in this community for 25 years and I served as assistant superintendent for 17 of those years. I feel the knowledge and experience gained as a high-level administrator has prepared me to best serve the community as a member of the Duneland School Board.”

Moffett’s wife of 32 years, Karen Moffett, is department chair of School Counseling at Chesterton High School; and their son, Trey, is a 2014 CHS graduate.
