LEE — The town’s school district will soon be looking for a new superintendent.
Lee Public Schools Superintendent Jake Eberwein announced that he would be resigning– effective the first week of December– to the school committee meeting held on Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Serving as superintendent for the district in a part-time role since November 2017, Eberwein will officially step down in 90 days.
At Tuesday’s school committee meeting, Chairwoman Andrea Wadsworth thanked Eberwein for his service to local education.
“It is hard for our district because you have made such great impact,” Wadsworth said. “We also know you have a bigger impact to make county-wide.”
While working three days a week in a superintendent role, Eberwein says he spends the other two days out of the week working on independent projects revolving around education.
Speaking after the meeting, Eberwein reflected on his time in Lee.
“This district has a really strong sense of identity and culture,” he told the Record. “I’ve been a part of several school districts and it’s very unique here. It’s a community that really cares about its members, very specifically its kids, and they really care about education.”
