Piute County Schools Superintendent Neil Hollingshead has resigned to accept a similar position in Marsh Valley, Idaho.
Hollingshead has led the Piute district for five years, during which he increased reserves from $85,000 to $500,000 while accomplishing several capital improvements and classroom upgrades."He'll be missed in the school system and in the community," district secretary Carma Brindley said. She said the application deadline to replace Hollingshead is July 28.
"We hope to have a new superintendent on board by Aug. 9, but that's probably overly optimistic," she said.
As superintendent of Piute schools, Hollingshead received $49,000 a year and district-paid housing. His new job will pay $58,000 a year.
