Nevada Joint Union high school district superintendent to retire
December 11, 2017
The board of trustees for the Nevada Joint Union High School District is expected to accept the resignation of Superintendent Louise Bennicoff Johnson at its meeting Wednesday.
Johnson, who was hired by the district in 2013, has announced her intent to retire as of July 27, 2018.
The board will discuss its plans for securing her replacement. Johnson told the trustees in a letter that it is common, but not necessary, to engage the services of a search consultant, and drafted a request for proposals for the board to consider.
During her tenure in Nevada County, Johnson shepherded the successful passage of Measure B. The bond measure, which provides the district with $47 million for repairs and upgrades, was narrowly approved in 2016. She noted in her letter of resignation that she will be able to support staff through the second phase of health and safety upgrades.
Prior to being hired by the high school district, Johnson served as superintendent for the Ripon Unified School District from 2008 to 2013.
