Juneau School District Superintendent steps down
Juneau School District Superintendent Dr. Mark Miller submitted his request to be released from his contract to the Board of Education today. Miller has served the district since 2014.
“It has been a humbling honor to have led the Juneau School District over the past four years,” Miller said. “Through heartbreaking losses and victorious celebrations, we have stuck together and persevered for the sake of our kids. I would like to thank the community, staff, parents and students for their work and support as we have taken this journey together. I have full confidence that I am leaving the district in very capable hands. We have worked hard to build capacity within our staff and the work we are doing is much larger than any one person. This has truly been the most fulfilling and amazing four years of my entire 30 plus year career in education and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity.”
“The Board of Education thanks Superintendent Miller for his four years of service to the students of Juneau,” Board President Brian Holst said. “He led the district through challenging years and gave his best effort, which we sincerely appreciate,” he adds, “We all wish him continued success.”
The Board of Education will begin the process to find a qualified individual to succeed Miller as Superintendent of the Juneau School District. The Board is expected to formally take action on the request at a special meeting scheduled for Friday, July 27 at 5 pm in Room 206 at Juneau-Douglas High School. The board plans to then go into executive session to discuss the hiring of a new superintendent.
