Greendale - William Hughes, superintendent of the Greendale School District, has announced his resignation, effective July 1.
"Serving as superintendent of the Greendale Schools has been a great honor and a defining part of my life," Hughes said. "I have been proud of my contributions to the long tradition of success in the Greendale Schools."
Hughes has served as superintendent since 1996 and is leaving the district to work as the director of leadership development with Schools That Can, Milwaukee.
"The timing was right," he said. "I am leaving to pursue work that I am passionate about, and I am confident that I leave the district in a strong position to move forward."
Schools That Can is a national not-for-profit organization that forms collaborative networks of high-performing inner-city schools to increase low-income families' access to quality schools.
"This is an ordered and well-considered departure and a friendly parting of the ways," School Board President Joe Crapitto said. "Choosing Dr. Hughes' successor will be the most important decision this board will make in the upcoming months. It will be so for obvious reasons, not the 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."
