Homan Retiring From SF School District In 2015

Homan Retiring From SF School District In 2015

It's an announcement that affects tens of thousands of KELOLAND students and their families.

Friday Superintendent Pam Homan announced this is her final year with the Sioux Falls School District which ends June 30, 2015.

She's spent her 34 year education career as a teacher, principal and administrator.

The announcement comes before she tackles long-term plans with the school board next week.

"I cannot stand there and bring out goals and strategies that make it look like they are going across years. I just need to be very, very transparent," Homan said.

While she isn't saying why she decided to leave the district, she admits the demanding position took a toll on her personal life.

"I would have found ways to protect the sacrifice of my family and probably approach that in a different way. I don't have that answer today," Homan said.

She adds her biggest accomplishments include programs that help both struggling and high-achieving students.

School Board Kent Alberty says the board will begin looking for a replacement for the district's highest position.

"What I will look for is someone that has a vision for the future that is in line with the vision that our community has continued to have as we have grown," Homan said.

Homan says there are other options she will consider after leaving the state's largest school district. In the meantime, she says her focus is continuing the district's mission over the next ten months.

"I'm looking forward to the next endeavor, many opportunities, but I will always be the district's greatest cheerleader and advocate," Homan said.

Homan says the process to find the next superintendent will begin Monday at the next school board meeting.
