NLR school chief plans retirement

Posted By on Fri, Mar 18, 2011 at 2:35 PM

North Little Rock School Superintendent Ken Kirspel told the School Board last night that the 2012-13 school year would be his last with the district. He's been superintendent since 2005 and, in 2013, will be 65 years old with 41 years of school service.

Kirspel hopes to go out with a bang. The district has been working on a plan for a broad restructuring of the schools. The district has been talking about a millage campaign to rebuild the entire district. Some schools would be closed; all dramatically improved, and grades would be realigned.

Kirspel told the board of his plans in a brief letter. It mentioned that he'd told the board about his thinking last year. He said he wanted to work with the board to develop a plan for a smooth transition to new leadership. That process will probably begin next winter.
