Breaking News: Triton Superintendent announces retirement

Over 20 years ago Triton Superintendent Brett Joyce began with the Triton School District.

On Thursday in a memo to staff he announced that he will be retiring at the end of the school  year.

The memo came after he contacted each school board individually and told them that he would be putting his letter of resignation in, effective for the end of the school year.

That resignation is expected to be accepted during the school board meeting on Tuesday.

School Board Chairman Jim Jensen explained that he has worked with Joyce since he first came to Triton in a variety of different roles, including as a parent, sheriff, school resource officer and most recently a school board member.

“He’s done a real good job at Triton,” Jensen said, “he’s going to be missed,” he added.

Debunking rumors

In another letter message sent out to staff by Superintendent Joyce, he explained that although rumors have been started that specific cuts have already been made, which isn’t the case.

While the reality is that the school will likely have to make cuts as they have in the past two years totaling about $550,000, those cuts will come after things are carefully examined.

Jensen explained that the process of making cuts will come after the business manager examines how much is needed to be cut as well as hearing recommendations from the administration team.

From there the board will vote on those cuts sometime in March or after.

Jensen would also like to thank everyone who

Supported the levy including community members and staff who helped push to pass the referendum, although he is disappointed with the end result. .

“I’m disappointed that the levy didn’t pass because it puts the school in a bind he said,”
