SHELBY — Shelby Public Schools Superintendent Dan Bauer announced at a special school board meeting Tuesday, Oct. 3, that he will retire Feb. 1, 2018.

“The board accepted Bauer’s resignation and plans to begin a search process very soon to find a new superintendent,” states a press release from the school district. “Bauer intentionally gave the board nearly four months notice in order for it to complete that search process.”

“The board has known that this was my plan for some time,” Bauer said. “I wanted to make it official early so they have plenty of time to complete a search.”

Bauer began his tenure as superintendent in July of 2012 and is in his sixth school year with the district. Bauer said that he has really enjoyed working at Shelby, but he wants to pursue other personal interests at this time.

“Shelby is a great school district with great kids and very hard working teachers, administrators and support staff. This is a great place to work,” he said.

Bauer’s last day in the district will be Jan. 31, 2018. He plans to travel, write, spend time with family, and consult during his retirement.

The Shelby School Board plans to discuss the superintendent search process at its regular meeting Monday, Oct. 16.
