Wilson to resign as PSD superintendent

Poudre School District Superintendent Jerry Wilson announced Monday he was resigning, though he wouldn’t tell district officials where he might be working next.

Wilson, whose last day with the district is June 30, was recently named one of four finalists for a superintendent position at Worcester County Public Schools in Maryland. The move, he told reporters last month, would bring him closer to family while giving him the ability to “stretch his wings” professionally.

“I am submitting my resignation … to pursue another superintendency,” Wilson said in an emailed note Monday. “I have enjoyed my time in Fort Collins, with the opportunity to serve the children and the PSD community.”

The school district said it expected Wilson to submit his resignation at a Board of Education session on Tuesday.

In his statement, Wilson said he felt “fortunate to have been a part of a great school district and to make a contribution to the excellence in PSD.”

“I wish my PSD friends my very best,” he said. “I have had the opportunity to work with an outstanding team of professionals, as PSD is fortunate to have remarkable educators working with children every day.”

It was not clear Monday whether Wilson had been offered the job in Maryland. A district spokeswoman said she asked Wilson but he did not tell her where he might be headed.

Wilson, who started his job in Fort Collins in 2005, attended high school and college in Maryland.
