Superintendent Richard Organisciak informed the City of New Rochelle School District that he intends to leave his position at the end of the current school year.
He revealed his plan in a letter to Board President David Lacher dated August 27. It was posted on the district Web site Tuesday.
Here is the letter in its entirety:
I am writing to advise you that I intend to resign my position as Superintendent of Schools of the New Rochelle School District for the purpose of retirement on June 30, 2014, which is the last day of my current contract. While I plan to fulfill the complete term of my contract, I cannot exclude the possibility that personal developments may necessitate an earlier effective retirement date. I will keep you informed of any developments which might lead to a retirement date earlier than June 30, 2014.
I intend to leave the School District in sound pedagogic, administrative and financial shape, and I will work with you and the administration to effect an orderly transition of leadership. It has been a privilege and honor to work on behalf of our many students and the community to elevate expectations and outcomes for all.
