LEWISBURG – “I regret that my decision brings another round of uncertainty,” said Dr. Jennifer Baugh, superintendent of the Lewisburg Area School District, Friday. She’s resigning after less than two years on the job.
Dr. Baugh started with the district in July 2020 and said she is in the process of finalizing details of her new superintendent position with a school district in the state of Colorado. Here is her formal announcement and farewell to Lewisburg:
May 20, 2021
Dear Lewisburg Area Community,
I wish to share with you that I have been offered a position as a superintendent of schools in Colorado. I chose to pursue this opportunity only because it brings me closer to family, and not for any reason having to do with the Lewisburg Area School District. I am in the process of finalizing details with the Colorado school district, and I am working closely with the School Board on transition and continuity for Lewisburg.
In July of 2020 when I joined the school district and this community, we were in an uncertain place due to the pandemic. However, with the combined efforts of our School Board, administrative team, staff, students, and families, we found ourselves in the place where we are now. It has been a normal end to another school year. I regret that my decision brings another round of uncertainty to our community. It was a team effort to work through the challenges of the past two years, not the efforts of a sole person. The spirit of that team endures, and that is what is at the heart of the Lewisburg community.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve in this school district, and I wish everyone all the best.
Dr. Jennifer Baugh
