Superintendent Tony Smith announced in a closed session with the board last night that he is resigning as superintendent, effective June 30.
His reasons are family-related, as his wife’s father was recently hospitalized, and he and his family will now be moving to Chicago.
Smith wrote a letter to the board about his resignation, saying how proud he is of the accomplishments that have been made since working with the board.
While there is still much work to do, the district is well positioned to achieve the objectives outlined in the balanced scorecard and meet the goals described in our ambitious strategic plan.
