Dr. Julie Fiieg, superintendent of Ste. Genevieve R-II Schools since July 3, 2018, will retire at the end of the 2022-23 school year.
Flieg, a Ste. Genevieve High School graduate who has been with thew district since being hired as a middle school bsuniess teacher in 1996, sent out a letter last week, making the announcement.
“After much contemplation and discussion with Jason, my husband, I have made the decision to retire with an effective date of June 30, 2023 (a year and a half from now), and I submitted my letter to the Board during the Executive (Closed) Meeting this past Tuesday evening. This decision is primarily based on my need to be able to “be there” for Jason, our four children, our parents and, now, our beautiful granddaughter,” Flieg said in the letter.
At that Jan. 18 board meeting, the board had approved the creation of a new position, “deputy superintendent.” In the closed session, Dr. Paul Taylor, assistant superintendent, was given the new title.
