Green Local Superintendent Michael Nutter announced his resignation Monday.
Monday, Green Local Superintendent Michael Nutter announced he will close a chapter on his educational career.
The Green Local Schools Board of Education unanimously accepted Nutter’s resignation. Nutter, who has been at the helm of the district since 2009, said he chose to step aside to pursue a career in the private sector.
“I have been in education over 20 years,” Nutter said today, “and with the changes in the retirement system and changes in education it would probably be another 16 or 17 years before I could retire.”
Green, he added, is stable. It has reached a point where it is suited to handle a leadership transition with solvent finances and a quality of education that continues to improve.
“My goal in life is to leave everything better than when I found it,” Nutter said. “I can honestly say that I have done that here. This is a great school district and the next person who comes in can do some really great things with it.”
Nutter has offered to stay with the district through July 31, if needed. If his successor is named prior to that date, Nutter will step aside sooner.
But he will not step down before having the chance to speak at graduation this year.
“That will be very special for me,” Nutter said of the ceremony that will honor the Class of 2013. “When I came here, (those students) were new to the high school, now they are graduating and, to me, that is something special.”
