Linn-Mar Superintendent to Retire
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The superintendent of the Linn-Mar Community School District has announced she will retire after the coming school year.
Doctor Katie Mulholland has set her resignation for June 2015.
Dr. Mulholland has held her post as superintendent since 2003. Her current term was not set to expire until April of 2017.
According to the Board of Regents, Mulholland earned three degrees from the University of Northern Iowa, a B.A. in art; a master's degree in special education; and a doctorate in educational administration.
She began her career as a teacher and special education consultant in the Waterloo Community School District.
"Katie has done an excellent job, especially managing the growth of our district. The rapid growth could have fractured our district but rather, it made us more united," said school board member Tim Isenberg.
Below is the transcript of the letter Dr. Mulholland sent to members of Linn-Mar's Board of Education:
Please accept my request to retire as superintendent effective June 30, 2015. At that time I will have completed twelve years at Linn-Mar and 40 years as a PK-12 educator. It has been a privilege to serve the Linn-Mar students, staff and community.
The leadership of the Board of Education and the members who have given their time, talents, and effort to grow Linn-Mar to meet the students' learning needs has truly been remarkable. I genuinely appreciate all of the opportunities the Board has made possible over the years which have resulted in quality learning for all. There is much, yet, to be accomplished this year and I look forward to working together on our goals.
Katie Mulholland, Ed.D
