Lewis-Palmer School District Superintendent John Borman announced his retirement at a special meeting of the Board of Education Thursday night. Borman said his last day with the school district will be Dec. 31.
He plans to pursue another professional opportunity.
He said, “It’s been an incredible privilege to serve this district, both as a principal and superintendent. This is the top district in the state. We have an outstanding staff and amazing kids. I will work with the Board for a seamless leadership transition. I look forward to watching the district continue to grow and excel.”
Borman has worked in the district for six and a half years, first as principal of Lewis-Palmer High School, then as superintendent since 2011. Under his leadership, District 38 has remained one of the top districts in Colorado.
Board of Education President Mark Pfoff said, “This is an example of what happens when you recruit and hire great people: they get hired away. We wish all the best to Mr. Borman, and thank him for all he has done for our kids, staff, district, and community.”
