Mati Palm-Leis’ last day as Washington Island School District Superintendent is just a few weeks away, but he is already planning on a return trip. Palm-Leis resigned from his post back in April due to family reasons. During his three year tenure, Palm-Leis has worked with staff members to focus on school climate, student involvement and curriculum to address its population’s evolving needs. Palm-Leis says he will miss the commitment the community had to the school.
Palm-Leis’ last day is June 30. According to the district’s website, the Washington Island School Board met June 4 in closed session to discuss and take potential action regarding contracts for a special education director, a superintendent of business services, and a principal, roles Palm-Leis served during his tenure.
