Sioux Falls Public Schools Will Soon Need a New Superintendent
After spending 25 years in the Sioux Falls School District, Dr. Pam Homan will let her Superintendent contract expire at the end of the current school year.
The announcement came Friday via email to District staff which was also shared with local media and is featured in the text below in its entirety.
First of all, congratulations to another great start of the school year! Because of your dedication and skills, you make a complex endeavor appear easy!
As we begin this year’s goals and strategies (to be presented to the School Board Monday night), I want you to know that when I wrapped up last year’s progress with the School Board, I informed them this would be my final year in the District.
June 30, 2015 will be the end of my 25th year in the District.
June 30, 2015 will be the end of my current 5-year contract.
June 30, 2015 will be the end of my 11th year as Superintendent.
July 1, 2015 is the perfect time for me to hand the baton to a new leader. The District is at the top of its game and during the last 11 years we have truly moved the District in a direction from good to great. As a team we have relentlessly focused on educating and preparing each student to succeed in our changing world. We have accomplished and anchored pathways and programs for our students and staff. Each of you has played a vital role in our success.
As I have always said, “Each day is a new opportunity.” I am thankful to have had the opportunity to be surrounded with your passion, commitment and service. I look forward to the next 10 months planning for the future as always and providing for a smooth transition from this great school year to the next.
Thank you for what you do each day, Pam
