The Pine City School District will be once again searching for a new superintendent after Paula Foley announced that she would be leaving the district.
Hired in July of 2021, Foley told WCMP in an email, "I am not available for a continued contract with Pine City as I need to focus on my family. I love it here, and the work we are doing is important to kids and to the community."
In a letter written to the school board, Foley said, "While I have been honored to work with the PCPS students, families, staff, administrators, Board and community, I am not interested in continuing my contract after June. I will continue to serve in the interim capacity with passion, grit, and with a focus on improvement and celebration."
The school board was scheduled to discuss its next steps in hiring a new full-time superintendent during a special meeting on February 6; however, that meeting was canceled due to the unavailability of board members.
The board is slated to further discuss the matter during its regular meeting on Monday, February 14.
