So this is what employees recieved this morning !!! Funny do ya think he felt something coming? hehe
To All School Employees,
After 20 years of being employed by Gilbert Public School I have decided to retire, effective June 30, 2013, which is the date my employment contract expires. Although it is relatively early in the school year for a retirement announcement, Board policy mandated that the Board had to decide on my contract by January 31. Because of this, I decided to make the announcement at this time. It also allows the Board a significant amount of time to hire a new superintendent.
During the past 20 years that I have worked for Gilbert Public Schools I have seen many changes. In my first 15 years with the District, it was one of the fastest growing school districts in the country. During the past 5 years, growth has not occurred but enrollment has been maintained. Both situations have provided me with challenges and opportunities during my tenure at Gilbert Public Schools.
Gilbert Public Schools has a stellar reputation of being one of the best school districts in Arizona. Some of the reasons for this are great facilities, solid community and parental support, student oriented Board members, students who have a positive attitude toward education, being a designated "A" district but most importantly, employees who work hard every day to provide a quality educational program to all District students.
The most rewarding part of the 20 years I have spent working for the District is my association with some of the greatest people I have ever known.
The Mission of Gilbert Public Schools is to "Ensure exemplary education that inspires excellence and success within every learner". I would ask all employees to work daily to achieve this mission. In doing so Gilbert Public Schools will become "World Class".
The Board and I will work closely together during the next 5 months to further enhance the objective of increasing student learning.
Thank you for a great twenty years.

GET HIM OUT OF THERE! DANGERFIELD NEEDS TO GO WITH HIM.......... It's time to clean house GPS BOARD!!! 4 months ago
Mathteach you have nailed it on the head! GPS neads to be cleaned out of their Administration! They have ALL lost touch with what is important..THE KIDS! They have all lost touch with how to treat the employees! From an employee stand point, GPS is the bottom of the barrel anymore. Employee use to be proud of GPS. Employees now are looking for new employment. There are so many things the news or public has not heard and it is sad that certain people get away with certain things, not because they are doing the "right" things because they are "yes" men for CERTAIN administrators!
I hope the new board CLEANS HOUSE! Get people in there that want to go good not pat each other on the back! 5 months ago
