The head of the Kamloops-Thompson School District will retire at the end of the school year.
School board chairwoman Denise Harper informed trustees Monday night that Supt. Terry Sullivan’s last day is July 31.
Harper said staff will soon start work on finding a suitable replacement for Sullivan, but promised day-to-day goings on within the district won’t be disrupted.
“For the balance of this year, it will be business as usual,” she said.
Sullivan, 67, will continue to work hard until the last hour of his last day on the job, he said.
“There’s a lot to do. There’s a lot to get done,” said Sullivan, indicating changes to the school calendar and a review of reconfiguration and boundary adjustments.
“You will certainly have my best effort until the last day.”
Sullivan came to Kamloops in 1999. This is his 15th year as superintendent.
He’s been in education for 40 years, and worked in Prince Edward Island, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and B.C. He was superintendent of a Nova Scotia school district before he took the job with Kamloops-Thompson.
Sullivan intends to stay in Kamloops after he retires.
