Spokane Public Schools Superintendent Nancy Stowell announced her resignation at the school board meeting Wednesday night. Her last day will be June 30.

Stowell has worked in the district for more than 40 years, and became interim superintendent in 2007 and superintendent in 2008 after a national search.

“I have experienced an incredible journey from my earliest days as a high school teacher in western Washington to this current position as superintendent,” Stowell said in an email to staff on Wednesday. “Working with all of you and the leaders in this community has been exceptionally rewarding.”
