Board meeting Tuesday includes search process


Jim Frey

  LYNDEN ­— Jim Frey is resigning as superintendent of the Lynden School District effective June 30.
  Frey says his decision is not a reflection of the current COVID-19 circumstances, but rather it’s been on his mind for about two years.
  “There comes a time when you know when it is time to make a change and for several reasons this is the time for me to look at new opportunities,” Frey says in a March 25 letter of notice to the Lynden School Board of Directors.
  The school board has set a special meeting for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 30, that was intended to address state updates in in-person learning. But the meeting now also includes discussion of a superintendent search process.
  Frey has been superintendent of the district since 2010, coming from an assistant superintendent role with the Mount Baker School District. 
  In his resignation letter, Frey expresses his appreciation to the district, its staff, students and families for the “tremendous privilege” of working alongside them for the past 11 years.
