When Detroit Lakes Superintendent Lowell Niklaus officially vacates that position on June 30, to accept a new position with the district as its education director, he will be taking a pay cut.


But Niklaus has a desire to return to the educational aspect of school administration.

"I was the education director here before I became superintendent," he said. "There are components of that job I truly miss."
