Aspen schools superintendent to stay

ASPEN – Dr. John Maloy, superintendent of the Aspen School District, will not be leaving his post in the foreseeable future.

Maloy confirmed last week that he was interviewing for jobs in Michigan. He said the decision was prompted by health concerns related to his aging parents, who live in the Midwest.

On Wednesday, Maloy sent an email to parents saying he’s no longer considering changing jobs.

“After considering my employment and family support options, as well as other variables such as the hiring of a new principal and the timing of my possible departure, I’ve decided to withdraw my name from current and future superintendent searches,” he wrote. “It is my desire to remain as the superintendent of schools for the Aspen School District, as I truly enjoy the people with whom I work and the challenges of maintaining exemplary schools.

“I have appreciated your understanding during this exploration process.”

The school board in November renewed Maloy’s contract through June 30, 2015. Maloy had a rolling three-year contract set to expire in June 2014. His compensation remained the same at $150,000.
