My Town Northview: School superintendent retires after 40 years in education

NORTHVIEW, Mich.—The Northview Board of Education is preparing to begin its search for a new superintendent.

Tuesday, Superintendent Mike Paskewicz announced he would retire July 1, 2015.  Paskewicz has led the district for five years.  Before that, he worked in the Grand Rapids Public Schools for 21 years and as superintendent in Ogden, Utah; Lake Zurich, Illinois; and Adams 12 Five Star Schools in Colorado.

"The Northview Public Schools community was blessed the last five years to have Mike Paskewicz as its superintendent. Dr. Paskewicz cares deeply about the students of the district, the staff, and the people the system serves. He successfully developed a context in which our students learn and out of which they find success for life. In the Northview way, Mike Paskewicz prepared everyone he touched for ‘life's next steps,’” stated Board President Dr. Tim Detwiler.

In his letter to the Board, Superintendent Paskewicz said, "As I complete my 40th year in public education, I wish to thank the Northview Board of Education, our staff, students, families and community members for allowing me to be part of the upbringing of the children of this community. I am a better educator and, more importantly, a better person because of you. We Are Northview!"

The search for Paskewicz’s replacement will begin in January 2015.
