Blaine County School District Superintendent GwenCarol Holmes plans to step down next year.
According to an email sent from the superintendent to district staff Monday, Holmes will step down as superintendent on June 30, 2021. She has already notified the district’s board of trustees of her intent to leave her position.
“This is an incredible district and the work we are doing together to ensure ALL students achieve at the highest level is extremely important to the continued success of our valley and our country,” Holmes said in the email. “I promise you that for the next 14 months, I will be all in as we continue to work together to fulfill the promise to all our students.”
The board of trustees is scheduled to consider renewal of Holmes’ contract at its regular March meeting Tuesday. Consideration of the contract is listed as an action item on the meeting agenda. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the Minnie Moore Room at the Community Campus, 1050 Fox Acres Road in Hailey.
Holmes has served as district superintendent since 2014, when she was hired to replace former Superintendent Lonnie Barber.
