Big news today from Poudre School District; superintendent Jerry Wilson is stepping down from his position, effective June 30th, 2012.In an email sent out to PSD parents earlier today Wilson said,

I am submitting my resignation effective June 30, 2012 to pursue another superintendency.  I have enjoyed my time in Fort Collins, with the opportunity to serve the children and the PSD community.

I feel 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.   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.

Thank you for your support and keep up the great work for the students we are all privileged to serve.

Wilson has been at the helm of PSD since 2005. It is not known where Wilson is going, but the Coloradoan reports that he was a finalist for the superintendent position with Worcester County Public Schools in Maryland.
