Boise school superintendent to retire

December 6, 2018

Superintendent Don Coberly will retire at the end of the 2018-19 school year. He has spent nearly 35 years working in the Boise district as a teacher, supervisor and curriculum coordinator before becoming the superintendent in 2010.

Boise school Superintendent Don Coberly is retiring, and trustees will meet Thursday to discuss a “succession plan.”

The news went public late Wednesday morning — but without a public appearance or a news release. Instead, the announcement came via a terse meeting agenda posted on the district’s website.

Trustees will hold a special meeting at noon Thursday at the District Services Center, 8169 W. Victory Road. The agenda includes only two items: accepting the superintendent’s retirement, and approving a superintendent succession plan.
