Superintendent Dr. Greg Ross has accepted a job at the West End School in Louisville and has announced his resignation effective June 10. The DISD Board of Education will begin a search for a superintendent. The board plans to select an interim superintendent following an executive session during Monday’s Board of Education meeting. The community will be informed about the process and timeline.
“First and foremost, thank you to the DISD Board of Education,” Ross said in a letter to staff and families on Thursday morning. “The board has stuck by me and supported me every step of the way. My decision to resign is by no means a reflection of any negativity with the school board. I could not have asked for a more supportive and collaborative group of community leaders to work with and to represent DISD. Whoever is selected as the next superintendent is immediately blessed with an amazing team of leaders to work with.”
“I have enjoyed every moment of my time as an Admiral and will cherish this experience always,” he said in the letter. “From our Lady Ads Basketball Team’s amazing year, to watching the phenomenal performance of ‘Mamma Mia,’ I have had so much to be proud of and be thankful for. Being able to spend time with students for lunch each week or walk into a classroom and see our teachers providing our students with focused instruction, I am so grateful for each experience shared.”
Board of Education Chair Esther Rugerio said “On behalf of the board, we are forever grateful for the impact Dr. Ross has made at Danville Schools. He has cared for and prioritized our student’s success. This was a hard decision for him to make, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
“We have complete confidence in the leadership at Danville Schools,” Rugerio said. “Our three chiefs at Central Office make a strong team, and they will keep us moving forward as we begin the process of hiring an interim and looking for a new superintendent.”
In his time as superintendent, Dr. Ross has made positive changes and has been heavily involved in the community and our school buildings. He attended many arts, athletic and community events, congratulated and spotlighted teachers and students weekly, and restructured the Central Office to better streamline leadership and operations, among his accomplishments.
