SALT LAKE CITY -- The Granite School District superintendent is retiring. Dr. Stephen Ronnenkamp plans to retire Aug. 1, after working for 39 years in public education.
Ronnenkamp was named as the superintendent in 1996 and is known for his unannounced Friday visits to schools.
"I have dedicated my entire professional life to serving school-age children in Utah's public schools. I have especially enjoyed the opportunity to serve these past 14 years as superintendent of the Granite School District," Ronnenkamp said.
He continued, "Not only have I loved working with the wonderful students and parents of the district, but my work has placed me with some of the finest professionals I have known during my career. Although we have experienced several challenging decisions over the years as a district, I believe that we have kept the children as our primary consideration."
The superintendent's retirement comes after the Granite Board of Education renewed his contract for an additional two years earlier this year.
