The Green Mountain School District is looking for a new superintendent for the upcoming school year.

Superintendent Joe Jones announced his resignation this spring from the small, rural district on the northernmost edge of Clark County. Looking to quickly fill the position, Educational Service District 112 has already posted an online recruitment notice for the job.

In an email to The Columbian, Jones explained that he made the decision to free up more time in his personal life and professional schedule ahead of getting married next month.

Jones has headed the K-8 single-schoolhouse district for the past five years. Looking back, Jones said he’s grateful for the support he’s received in the role as the Green Mountain’s academic programs have grown and developed.

“We earned The Washington School of Distinction Award in 2012 and 2014,” he said. “I attribute our consistent success to the high level of professionalism from our staff and the hard work of our students.”

During his time at the helm, enrollment has hovered around 150 students each year. The remote school is run by a staff of about 20 employees. Among the highlights that come to mind, the district recently added more classroom space and a new science lab, he said.

“It has truly been an honor for me to learn with and serve the students, staff, and families of the Green Mountain community,” he said. “The consistent time and support that our school board and community members commit to our students and staff continues to make Green Mountain a premier place for learning.”

ESD 112 will take applications to replace Jones through 5 p.m. on June 2. For more information or to apply for the job, contact Melissa Kreuder in the service district’s human resources department at Melissa.kreuder@esd112.org.
