--- Matt Fisher email to the district
After much prayerful consideration and soul searching over the past couple of months I have decided to submit my resignation as superintendent for the Northwest school district.
I became eligible for retirement prior to the start of this school year. I wanted to see the bond election through this past fall so I elected to stay on through this school year. Once the election was over I had intended to announce that I would be retiring. However, I have found that walking away from the great people that I have had the privilege to serve over the past seven years has been a very difficult decision.
After being back and forth multiple times, I have returned to what I came into this year believing was the best decision for myself and my family. I have truly cherished my time here in the Northwest school district. It will always be a great source of pride for me to be able to say that I got to be a part of this truly amazing district. Thank you to everyone who makes Northwest the special place that it is!
