Quincy School District Superintendent John Boyd will be leaving the district to join Evergreen Public Schools in Vancouver, Washington in the near future.

Quincy School Board Vice-President Tricia Lubach stated that Boyd, who she helped hire in 2014, brought a tremendous amount of growth, change and improvement to the district during his tenure.

Lubach said, "I think one of the biggest and move visible changes that has happened in the district was the passage of our bond which led to a brand new, state of the art high school that was designed for this century, as opposed to the last century."

The board has sole responsibility for hiring the next superintendent and will begin considering its options for filling his position during a planned executive session Thursday night.

Lubach added that Boyd is committed to making sure the district has all the support it needs before he takes on his new position with Evergreen Public Schools full time. Boyd may work part-time between both districts for a while.

If needed, Assistant Superintendent Dr. Nik Bergman could step into Boyd's role if Boyd departs before the board can find a suitable replacement. Bergman has been with the district for 18 years.
