Welcome to Nyssa School District
At the January School Board Meeting, I notified the Board of my intent to resign from my position of Superintendent of the Nyssa schools as of June 30, 2016.
I have enjoyed my years in the Nyssa schools. I graduated from Nyssa High School in 1968. Twenty-three years later, I was given the opportunity to return to the district, after having taught in a large school district, several small districts, and in Africa. During my time at Nyssa I have been given the opportunity to serve as a special education teacher, program director, vice principal, principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent. I believe that Nyssa School District has given me great experiences and opportunities to grow and help a great staff to make a difference in the lives of many students. It has been a great career, and I am grateful for such a varied and enriching experience.
On the other hand, I would like to take time for some additional adventures. I would like to travel, try some new experiences, and, most of all, spend a lot more time with my family. For those reasons, I am excited about the next phase of my life.
I wish you and the school district the best, now and in the future. I know that you and the Nyssa School District staff will continue to provide a high quality of education and experience for Nyssa’s students. I will do all that I can to help make the transition to a new school year and new superintendent as smooth as possible.
Thank you for your support and for the opportunities I have been given.-- Janine Weeks, Superintendent
