Paso Robles Unified School District’s Superintendent has resigned.
District officials say Chris Williams initiated his resignation during a special closed-session board meeting Thursday.
The announcement came after “his ninth consecutive positive evaluation that met and exceeded standards,” officials said. “It is with the deepest gratitude that we thank Chris Williams for the passion, purpose, conviction, and leadership he has provided in the transformation of our District into one of excellence.”
Williams’ resignation was accepted by the Board of Trustees 6-1. The transition will reportedly take place over the next 60 days.
During Thursday’s meeting, the board also accepted the resignations of two other district employees: Kristin Shouse, director of student services, and Rich Clayton, director of athletics.
Williams has served as superintendent since 2014.
