Dr. Ed Lyman has announced that he is leaving the San Juan School District after serving as superintendent for less than one year. His resignation is effective on August 1.

Lyman signed a two-year contract when he joined the district as superintendent on July 1, 2016. He replaced the longtime superintendent, Dr. Doug Wright.

Lyman has worked in the education field for more than 30 years, including 14 years serving as the superintendent at school districts in Texas.

In a letter to faculty and staff on May 2, Lyman stated that his personal situation has changed and that family matters in Texas “require more and more attention and may soon require my presence.”

The fiscal year for the school district generally begins on July 1. Lyman said he will stay an additional month, adding, “This delay should provide the district adequate time to find a new superintendent and achieve a smooth transition.” 

“San Juan County is a great place to live, experience a wholesome family atmosphere, and work with outstanding individuals.  San Juan School District is moving in a positive direction with wonderful staff and excellent teachers.   I am blessed to have been a part of the SJSD team.”

The San Juan School District operates twelve schools and teaches approximately 3,000 students.
