When the new school year starts in less than two weeks, it’ll be the last for Charles Nagle as Columbia County School Superintendent.
Nagle, who is beginning his sixth year in the position, announced his retirement Thursday at the school system Principals’ Conference.
After 37 years in education, Nagle will step down on June 30 at the end of the 2012-13 school year.
“Thirty-seven years is a long time to give to public service,” he said. “I feel that while I’m still healthy, I would like to be able to spend more time with my family.”
