It’s been three short years since Granite Falls School District Superintendent Karen Koschak, 64, began her journey through the halls of the school district. Koschak announced her plans to retire after the 2011 school year.
Koschak addressed a letter to the Granite Falls School Board on Feb. 10 announcing her decision.
She stated her desire to spend time with her family, participating in volunteer opportunities and her desire to travel as reasons for her departure.
In her tenure at the Granite Falls School District, Koschak helped implement the math book donation drive and focusing on the district’s curriculum.
Before being hired in Granite Falls, Koschak had served as superintendent for the Aberdeen School District and in the Baja Peninsula in Mexico where she taught impoverished children.
