Idaho Falls superintendent announces plan to retire

Idaho Falls School District Superintendent George Boland says he’ll retire at the end of this school year after four decades in education and 15 years in his current position.

Boland attended and graduated from Idaho Falls schools as did his children.

“It has been an honor to serve the students, parents, patrons and staff of Idaho Falls School District 91,” Boland said in a news release. “I am very appreciative of the opportunity I have had to shape this district. It has been a rewarding experience for which I will always be grateful.”

Boland started his educational career in Billings, Mont., where he taught for 11 years before becoming the assistant principal at Idaho Falls High in 1991. He became the principal at Skyline High in 1995, before becoming the supervisor of educational services to the district in 2002. He was hired as superintendent in 2006.

Idaho Falls School Board of Trustees Chair Lara Hill said the district will miss Boland’s “thoughtful approach” to leading the district.

“He is very well respected by his peers, colleagues and the community and he will be sorely missed,” Hill said.
