Glenbard High School District 87 Superintendent Mike Meissen -- a finalist for the top administrative position at Eden Prairie Schools in Minnesota -- didn't get the job, district officials said.
Meissen, who has announced that he will be leaving Glenbard at the end of the school year, interviewed with the Eden Prairie school board and community members last week, one of three finalists for the superintendent job.

The board on Friday voted to begin contract negotiations with Curt Tryggestad, superintendent at Little Falls Community Schools in Minnesota, to become the district's next superintendent.
The third finalist was Gerald Hill, superintendent at Glenview School District 34.
Meissen previously was a finalist for superintendent jobs at L'Anse Creuse Public Schools in Michigan and Moline School District 40 in the Quad Cities. He withdrew his name from consideration at L'Anse Creuse, and was not selected in Moline.
Meanwhile, Glenbard announced its pick to replace Meissen last week. David Larson, superintendent of the Birmingham public school system in suburban Detroit, starts his new role July 1.
