Last Updated on Feb 2, 2016 at 4:10pm | Public Information Office

In accordance with Section 4-201(b)(2) of the Education Article to the Annotated Code of Maryland, Dr. Janet Wilson has notified the Garrett County Board of Education that she will not seek reappointment as Superintendent so that she may entertain and pursue other opportunities.
 
Dr. Wilson states, “I have enjoyed working with the Board over the past four years, and I am very proud of the many accomplishments that have occurred during my tenure as Superintendent.  Although the school system has faced many challenges along the way, we have all worked together -- teachers, staff, Board, Superintendent and community -- in a collaborative manner to effect positive change and growth for the good of the system and the students that we all strive each day to serve.
 
I know that I will miss working with the Board and the many dedicated employees who work tirelessly for the benefit of the students of Garrett County, but I also know that this is the right time for a new opportunity.   In announcing my decision, I am gratified that I will be leaving behind a school system that is better off than it was when I entered this position four years ago.
 
I sincerely thank the Garrett County community for giving me their confidence and trust during my tenure and I sincerely wish everyone the best as the school system continues to respond to the ever-changing landscape of education.”
 
Garrett County Board President, Charlotte Sebold stated. “The Board appreciates the service that Dr. Wilson has provided to our children, staff and community.  There is no doubt that she has helped us achieve many accomplishments at a time when Garrett County experienced the largest percentage losses in State aid and enrollment five of the last six years.  The Board will be meeting in the near future to discuss how to best address this new challenge of naming a successor.”
