IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - The Idaho Falls Board of Trustees is resuming its search for a new superintendent.
Pingrey notified the board Friday morning he was withdrawing his acceptance of D91’s offer. He has instead accepted the superintendent position at McCall-Donnelly School District, according to a statement released by the school board.
“We listened to our patrons and staff. We were asked to find a Superintendent who would lead our district to the next level of achievement. While acknowledging that the MDSD is a state and nationally recognized high performing district, Mr. Pingrey presented a clear and specific strategy on how he would work with our district goals in our continuous improvement plan to foster growth at all levels in the district. Mr. Pingrey’s proven abilities to effect change through research, data, and most importantly his collaborative relationships are stellar”, said MDSD Board Chair Laurie Erekson.
The board has scheduled a special meeting on Monday, April 5, to discuss next steps in the search process.
Current superintendent George Boland is retiring at the end of the school year.
