USD 489 has confirmed in an email to Hays Post that Deputy Superintendent Richard Cain has announced he is also retiring from the school district. Mr. Cain submitted his
letter to notify the Board of his intent to retire, effective September 1. This is listed in the personnel transactions to be acted upon at the July 15th meeting.
Earlier Tuesday, Superintendent Will Roth sent an email to staff announcing his retirement date had changed to Oct. 1. The School board requested Roth retire in October. He had recently announced a retirement date of July of 2014.
He was appointed interim superintendent in September 2010 after Fred Kaufman retired, and then named superintendent two months later.
Hays Post had contacted School District Board President Greg Schwartz when Roth made his original announcement and about today’s news. However, he has not returned a call and did not immediately responded to an email.
