Huron School District Supt. Richard Naughton submitted his letter of retirement to the Huron Schools Board of Education on June 26.

Naughton’s last day in the district will be January 31, 2018.

After working for 33 years in education, Naughton plans to spend his extra time traveling with his wife, and spending time with his grandson who is due in September.

“Thank you again for the opportunity to serve as superintendent of schools in this great school district,” Naughton said in his letter to the school board. “I found that Huron Schools’ greatest assets are its exceptional students, supportive families, outstanding teachers, and an extremely committed support staff.”

The Board of Education, with the help of Dr. Rod Green, consultant with the Michigan Association of School Boards, is planning a search for the next superintendent in Huron.

The board will conduct public forums for parents, students, employees and community members in late August.

The forums will give its participants the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas related to the next candidate for superintendent.

A schedule for the forums will be released in August, according to the district.
