Kenai Peninsula Borough School District superintendent Sean Dusek announced his retirement on Monday.
Dusek will be leaving the district at the end of the school year, effective June 30.
“I’m resigning for retirement purposes,” Dusek said during Monday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education work session.
There is no one lined up to replace Dusek. On Monday, the school board discussed plans to create a committee that would begin the process of finding a new superintendent.
Dusek has served as the superintendent for nearly five years.
During Monday’s work sessions, school board member Dan Castimore said the district was large enough to have a CEO instead of a superintendent. The school board’s committee will see what’s the most suitable plan of action for filling the superintendent’s role later this year.
