It's been more than a year since Matthew Handelman resigned as superintendent of Coeur d'Alene Public Schools.

And now, the district says it has found a permanent replacement.

Coeur d'Alene Public Schools chose Steven Cook to lead the district, starting July 1.

"We are excited to offer this position to a career educator who will bring a high level of expertise, skills and leadership to the role," says Board Chairman Casey Morrisroe in a statement.

Cook comes from Colorado, where he's deputy superintendent for the Douglas County School District in Denver. There, he oversees everything from professional development to special education and career and technical education. He began his education career in Kansas, where he spent 24 years, including 13 years as a science teacher.
