Snake River and its superintendent part ways

BLACKFOOT — Superintendent Mark Gabrylczyk will leave Snake River School District effective immediately, district officials said Monday.

Gabrylczyk, who has been with the district since June 2012, is leaving with two years remaining on his contract. Gabrylczyk will be paid for one year of that contract, but will forgo payment for the final year, according to a district news release. The final year’s payment will be used to help pay the salary of a new superintendent.

School Board Chairman Bill Martin said the split was mutually beneficial for both parties.

“This worked good for both sides and is a good fit for both of us at this time,” Martin said. “He had other opportunities come up and we had other opportunities.”

Martin said they have a possible candidate for an interim superintendent, but no replacement has been officially announced.
