Lower Kuskokwim School District Superintendent Jacob Jensen has resigned effective June 30th. The LKSD board appointed Dan Walker as the acting superintendent. Due to Jensen’s need to be near his family for his wife’s health needs, the board placed Jensen on leave until summer.

The board accepted his resignation Tuesday morning in their regular meeting. They also voted to start negotiations with Walker to serve as permanent Superintendent beginning July 1st.

Walker has experience working as an Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Programs for the district prior to moving to the new position.

Jensen has been the superintendent for LKSD for less than 2 years. He began in the summer of 2013.

LKSD serves 22 villages, with 28 schools, and over 4,000 students.
