Espe quits superintendent position


School District 60 Superintendent Larry Espe is leaving the post after seven years, he announced at tonight's school board meeting.

Espe said he has not decided whether he is merely resigning from the school board or retiring altogether, and wanted to give the board plenty of time to hire a replacement before the new school year in September. But he added he wanted to move on to other things despite being proud of the work his board colleagues did while he was at the helm.

"When I think of collaboration, it was a bit of a buzzword when I first came into the job but I think people really are now seeing the importance of working together," Espe said.

"Teaching with the door open and trusting each other. If I had anything to do with that, I feel good about it." He also said the district staff's emphasis on students responsibility to be good citizens was a proud achievement.

"I'll miss the exciting conversations, I'll miss the blue-sky dreaming about how we can change education."
