Bridgeport superintendent resigns

The Bridgeport school district will need a new superintendent. Dave Miller, who has been the district's superintendent for the past five years, confirmed Wednesday he submitted his resignation to the school board Wednesday evening, effective at the end of the school year.

Miller says he resigned for personal reasons and is looking to relocate. Miller says over the next six months he will be working on the financial aspect of a recently passed school bond issue, establishing a credit rating for the district, the duration of the bond, and trying to get the lowest interest rate possible. He will also be hiring a Construction Manager for the project, with the goal to have construction started prior to the new superintendent taking over.

Miller believes he is leaving the district in good shape, noting two other construction projects were completed during his five years without a bond issue. One is a 2,500 square addition for special education classes paid for with federal funds and money from the district's capital construction fund. A 1,500 square foot vocational education facility was built with capital construction funds and one third by donations.
