The North Judson-San Pierre School Board Tuesday night expressed appreciation of the man who has led the corporation for the past six months. They recognized Interim Superintendent Dr. Robert Boyd during the “Bluejay Way” portion of the meeting for his “outstanding service” in that capacity.
Boyd took over in January following Superintendent Lynn Johnson’s abrupt retirement at the end of December. He led N.J.-S.P. through the “right sizing” of the corporation, which resulted in the issuance of 24 reduction in force notices. At the time officials said those cuts were necessary in order to reconcile cuts in state funding due to declining enrollment following last fall’s failed push for a tax increase.
The school board last month hired Dr. Annette Zupin as superintendent. She will take over that job July 1st.
