Somerset Co. Superintendent To Resign

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET CO., Md. - Superintendent Marjorie Miles is stepping down from her position in the Somerset County public school system. According to school board officials, she asked to resign to "pursue other opportunities" and the motion was approved Monday. Miles took the position of Superintendent of SCPS in August 2011, but as of June 30, she will no longer hold the title.

In a statement to SCPS staff Dr. Miles said, "I write to you today to express my appreciation for your extraordinary work on behalf of our students, their families, and our community. Through our collective efforts, the Somerset County Public Schools today is well on its way to becoming a high performing school district—both by state and national measures….  As a result SCPS's trajectory continues in an upward direction towards our primary goal of improved student achievement."

We're told a search for her replacement will begin immediately. If the Board is unable to find a suitable replacement by June 30, 2013, an interim superintendent will be named to assume the position.
