CRETE, NE – Crete Public Schools superintendent Mike Waters recently submitted his resignation to the school board at a late-February meeting.

The board accepted Waters’ resignation, which is effective at the end of the 2018-2019 school year, according to a statement from school board chair Justin Kuntz.

The Crete school district had no comment besides a written statement provided by Kuntz.

“The board would like to thank Dr. Waters for his contributions and service to the district and wishes him the best of luck in all his future endeavors,” the statement read.

Instruction director Dr. Bret Schroder was named as acting superintendent. During a meeting on March 1, board secretary and head of the personnel committee, Julie Kozisek, presented The Nebraska Association of School Boards’ plan and pricing for help with hiring a new superintendent.

The board approved entering into an agreement with NASB, which will cost around $3,000. Kozisek said an ad was published in the Omaha World Herald last Sunday, and interviews will start by the end of March.
