WCSD trustees bring back McNeill for third stint as superintendent
The Washoe County School District trustees have rehired Kristen McNeill as the district’s interim superintendent.
Board president Beth Smith put McNeill’s name forward, introduced her at the meeting, and reminded her fellow trustees of the goals they are working towards in the aftermath of current superintendent Susan Enfield’s resignation.
“As board president, my mind immediately turned to making sure that the progress we’ve been making, the fantastic three-year strategic plan and all of its bold goals which our students and staff deserve to see come to fruition, to make sure that we maintain that progress,” she said.
McNeill starts on Dec. 13 and will work with Enfield until her last day on Feb. 9. McNeill previously served as interim superintendent in 2012 and from July 2019 to April 2020, when she was hired to serve as permanent superintendent. She held that position until June 2022.
Since her retirement from that role, she has done some long-term substituting in the district.
