Letter from the Superintendent:

My name is Ned Clooten and I am the Superintendent here at Devils Lake Public

Schools.  I am in my 26th year in education.  Prior to DLPS I was a HS Principal

for 16 years in Wahpeton, ND and Milnor, ND and prior to that I was a Science

teacher in the states of Alaska and Minnesota for nine years. My children,

Jackson (18), Noah (16), and Ella (13) are the joys of my life and when I'm not at DLPS,

I'm soaking up as much time with them as possible! My wife Valerie and I

have been married for 24 years and look forward to meeting as many people in

Devils Lake as possible!

If you have something to share, please don't hesitate to stop in or contact me via

phone or email. Thank you for your continued support of our mission, “To nurture

students by supporting their individual growth.”
