Superintendent Chad Higgins announces resignation

Superintendent Chad Higgins announced his decision to resign from his position as superintendent on Friday October 29th. The resignation will be effective at the end of the 2021-22 school year.

The decision was made when Higgins took a step back to reflect on his life and what both him and his wife wanted and decided he was ready to continue his next chapter of life as a husband, father, and soon-to-be-grandfather. He feels that once he becomes a grandfather the demand of superintendency will be too much and he won’t be able to serve the district as he thinks it deserves.  

Higgins leaves the district after more than six years with high hopes that the district will appoint an outstanding new superintendent for our district to help it “heal, grow, and flourish despite challenges that have unfolded.”

Higgins is proud of how far our district has come and he is looking forward to making his last months as superintendent the best he can. He intents to continue to provide the best school year possible over the next several months until the end of the 2021-22 school year.
