At the school board meeting on March 30th board members accepted the resignation of Superintendent Martin Schmidt. Mr. Schmidt stated, “It has been a pleasure serving the Skykomish Community as the superintendent for the last two years. Skykomish School is filled with wonderful students and staff that have made my tenure at Skykomish an unforgettable experience. We have accomplished much in the last two years and I am confident that the new superintendent will build upon the work that is in progress”.
The school district has retained the services of McPherson & Jacobson Executive Recruitment Firm to assist in the recruitment and selection of the next superintendent. School board members will be conducting candidate interviews on May 16, 17 & 18. Parents, staff, students and community members will also have an opportunity to talk with the candidates on these three days. The school board members hope to have their selection made by the board meeting on May 25th. The new superintendent’s contract will begin on July 1st.
