McIntyre has been with the Hudson School District since July 1, 2009. This is the third Hudson School District administrator this school year to be recruited by another school district.
Below is a news release from the district:
In a letter to the Board of Education McIntyre stated, “Although I was not looking for a new position, I was recruited to this leadership opportunity in ISD 622. I have been offered an opportunity to provide district leadership in a larger urban district, which will include redesigning the way special services are provided for which I have a passion. It will also afford me greater opportunity to develop my long-term career aspirations in Minnesota, where I currently reside. In addition, the compensation package is significant enough to be another major factor in my decision to resign from Hudson, which I believe is in the best interest of me and my young family.”
In response to McIntyre’s resignation, Superintendent Mary Bowen-Eggebraaten stated, “We thank Mr. McIntyre for his leadership, passion, and commitment to serving ALL Hudson students. During Mr. McIntyre’s tenure, special education referrals went down 31 percent and special education placements went down 40 percent. This translates to more students learning at higher levels.”
McIntyre will remain with the district through June 30.
The Director of Student Services position has now been posted. The district’s goal is to have a new director approved by the Board at the July 9 Board of Education meeting.
The administration is working on the selection process now.
“Next year will be a year of leadership transition as we welcome four new administrators to Hudson to replace the three recruited by other districts and District Deputy Director Nancy Sweet who will be retiring,” the district’s news release states. “Focus will be on rebuilding system-wide leadership capacity while also capitalizing on the enthusiasm, energy, and ideas from the new administrators.
“The Hudson Schools’ traditions of success to support each student learning at high levels and to advance the strategic vision HSD 2025 remain over-arching goals. The district is fortunate to have a talented veteran team of administrators and teacher leaders to provide support to the new administrators as they transition into the Hudson Schools.”
