Lassen High School superintendent Todd Cutler has formally announced his resignation, effective July 1st, in a letter addressed to the school district’s staff.
Cutler wrote, “It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter. I am very thankful for the three years that I have had the privilege of serving as the Superintendent for the Lassen Union High School District, and I have truly enjoyed my time here.”
Cutler came to Susanville from northern Nevada where he started his career as a Social Studies teacher.
His first administrative position was in Storey County as Principal of Virginia City High School, after which he spent ten years as an administrator in Lyon County.
Cutler was also the Mayor of Fernley, Nevada from January of 2007 to August of 2009.
“I am honored to have been provided this opportunity by the LUHSD Board of Trustees and will cherish the relationships we’ve built around the common goal of student success.”
Cutler explains that while his family loves, ‘the district, staff, and the community,’ an opportunity has arisen which he believes is in their best interest, and which will, “better serve the overall needs of my family.”
Cutler will be asking the board to accept his resignation this Tuesday, June 19th, at their regularly scheduled meeting.
His official last day of work, according to the letter, will be July 1st.
“I feel that the work we have done together over the last three years has promoted the mission of the district,” says Cutler, “and hope that the work towards transparent communication, staff development and student success will continue to be the priority with the Board.”
As a final note to staff Cutler concludes the letter by saying, “I have truly enjoyed working with each of you and wish you all the best in the future.”
