KRGI News obtained a copy of the email that is listed below. It is anticipated that Fisher will submit his letter of resignation to the school board this evening for the school board will gather for the February monthly meeting at 7pm. KRGI News Director Ryan Baker caught up with Fisher this afternoon to talk about his decision. Listen to the interview below.

 

--- Matt Fisher email to the district

After much prayerful consideration and soul searching over the past couple of months I have decided to submit my resignation as superintendent for the Northwest school district. 

 I became eligible for retirement prior to the start of this school year.  I wanted to see the bond election through this past fall so I elected to stay on through this school year.  Once the election was over I had intended to announce that I would be retiring.  However, I have found that walking away from the great people that I have had the privilege to serve over the past seven years has been a very difficult decision. 

 After being back and forth multiple times, I have returned to what I came into this year believing was the best decision for myself and my family.  I have truly cherished my time here in the Northwest school district.  It will always be a great source of pride for me to be able to say that I got to be a part of this truly amazing district.  Thank you to everyone who makes Northwest the special place that it is!
