Matt Gibson, superintendent of the Elmbrook School District, has announced that he will retire after the 2011-12 school year. At that time he will have served 17 years as Elmbrook's superintendent, 31 years as a school superintendent and 40 years total in education, according to an Elmbrook news release.
"It's been a great match and a labor of love working with the people and leading through the needs of the most competitive large school district in the state," Gibson said in the release.
Gibson said he believes this school year may be his most challenging, and he looks forward to transitioning the district into a "new era."
School Board President Tom Gehl said the board will soon decide on a superintendent search process and begin moving toward securing Gibson's replacement.
"Choosing Matt Gibson's successor will be the most important decision this board will make in the next eight months," Gehl said in the release. "It will be so for obvious reasons, not least of which is the combination of care, wisdom, discretion and commitment he has demonstrated during his many years of service to our district and community."
