Superintendent Finalist Candidates Photos and Text Graphi

Updated 3/17/21 with extended feedback form timeline details and interview recording links

Dear Peninsula School District Community,

Following preliminary interviews with five semi-finalists on Saturday, March 13, the Peninsula School District Board of Directors has announced the two finalist candidates for the district’s superintendent position. 

The board has selected the following finalists:

  • Krestin Bahr, Superintendent, Eatonville School District
  • Tim Winter, Superintendent, South Kitsap School District

The finalists will have a second interview with the board, staff, and community members. Each finalist will spend a day interviewing with staff groups before an evening community interview. Second interviews will take place Tuesday, March 16 and Wednesday, March 17.

Community Interview Opportunity:

The community will have the opportunity to join a Zoom webinar at 6:00pm to observe a community interview on:

Community members are encouraged to submit questions in advance of each candidate interview by completing this question submission form. A moderator will ask the candidate questions. 


The feedback form for Tim Winter was made live at the time of the Tuesday, March 16 community interview. The same was done for Krestin Bahr's feedback form at the time of the Wednesday, March 17 interview. Access forms in the interview schedule section at

We had originally planned, and communicated, that forms would close promptly (within 30 minutes) after interviews. The reason for this is to prepare feedback results to provide to the board in a timely fashion for deliberation in advance of a decision and scheduled announcement on Friday morning.

That priority remains, however, our search firm and school board have given approval to allow the forms to remain open for a longer period of time. Feedback forms for Tim Winter and Krestin Bahr will both close on Thursday, March 18 at 9 am in order for all results to be delivered to and reviewed by the board.

The board encourages community feedback and will review each form received.

The board plans to announce its choice for superintendent on Friday, March 19 at 8:30 am and finalize the contract at its regular meeting on Thursday, March 25. The selected individual will officially assume the job on July 1, 2021.
