Green had been superintendent of Woodland Public Schools since July 2007; retirement will be effective June 30
Michael Green, superintendent of Woodland Public Schools since July 2007, announced his resignation and retirement effective at the end of this school year on June 30, 2024.
“When I was asked in 2007 by the board of directors to join Woodland Public Schools as your superintendent, I never anticipated that I would make Woodland my home for seventeen years,” said Green. “In my remaining months as superintendent, I remain deeply invested in supporting the board, the community, and most importantly, the children we serve.”
As Woodland Public Schools superintendent, Green is credited with helping the district grow, improve student learning, and weather unprecedented circumstances including landslides, wildfires, and the pandemic in 2020. Under his guidance, the district’s leadership team implemented strategies and techniques based on collaboration and reflective practices that continue to direct and support increased student learning. In addition, Green guided the district to pass its first bond for school construction in nearly 20 years in April 2024, which led to the construction of Woodland High School, which opened in August 2015.
Green’s early notification of his intent to retire gives the board of directors a substantial amount of time to engage in the challenging task of selecting a new leader for Woodland Public Schools, “As a team, the board is deeply committed to making decisions that are in the best interest of kids, and the community they serve,” he said. “I have made the decision to announce my retirement early to allow them the opportunity to identify the best future leader for Woodland Public Schools.”
Green’s retirement concludes a 38-year career in public education, working as a teacher, principal, and district administrator in eight different school districts. “None became the home that Woodland has been to me and my family,” he said. “Between now and the end of June, I remain deeply invested in continuing to support the ongoing work of supporting our dedicated staff as they serve our community’s children.” Retirement brings new opportunities for Green as he plans to pursue other aspirations including spending more time with his family.
