Dear Philipsburg-Osceola Community,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the newly appointed Superintendent of the Philipsburg-Osceola School District. My name is Dan Potutschnig, and I am thankful for the opportunity to join the Philipsburg-Osceola community and work alongside the dedicated faculty and staff of this great school district.

Having spent 21 years in the field of education, I bring a deep passion for fostering a positive and collaborative learning environment. My journey in education has been marked by a commitment to student success, staff development, and community engagement. I firmly believe that education is a transformative force that shapes the future, and I am excited to contribute to the continued success of the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District.

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working in several different communities and I continue to be committed to building strong relationships with students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Open communication, transparency, and collaboration are at the core of my leadership philosophy. I am dedicated to creating an educational environment where every student can thrive.

I look forward to getting to know each member of the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District community and working together to enhance the educational experience for our students. As we begin this journey together, I welcome your ideas, feedback, and participation in shaping the future of our school district. Remember, we are the Philipsburg ­Osceola Mounties, and Together, We Journey to the Top!
