Statement from Stewart Mininsky
President of the Long Beach Public Schools Board of Education

At a special meeting of the Board of Education to be held this evening, the Board will vote on a measure to accept the resignation of Superintendent of Schools David Weiss.

Mr. Weiss has faithfully served our school district for the past six years. His veteran leadership has been evident in the success realized by our students during this time. His commitment to students and families within this community is to be commended, and he has set the bar high for our district’s next leader.

We are grateful that Mr. Weiss will continue to serve as superintendent of schools through the opening of the 2017-18 academic year. This will not only ensure a smooth opening to the school year, but will also afford our Board the time needed to develop a plan for the recruitment of a new superintendent.

We will continue to keep the community updated as this plan is developed and look forward to input from all district stakeholders.

Again, on behalf of the entire Board, we thank Mr. Weiss for his dedicated years of service to Long Beach Public Schools and wish him much success.
