Important Message from Superintendent Miller

Important Message from Superintendent Miller

On Jan. 18, 2023, Superintendent Matt Miller shared the following letter with parents regarding his plans to tender his resignation to the Lakota Board of Education.


Dear Lakota Parents/Guardians & Community,

After much consideration, I will be tendering my resignation to the Lakota Board of Education. This has been a very difficult decision for me, but I am looking forward to a new, and very unique, opportunity that has been offered to me. In order to move forward with this new position, I will be leaving Lakota at the end of this month.

I am incredibly proud of the work that our teachers, staff and administrators have accomplished since I arrived nearly six years ago. Every decision that WE have made has been with the best of intentions for our students. WE take our mission statement to heart: Everything WE do is designed to provide a future-ready, student-centered learning experience for every single child.

In every building, our teachers and staff put our students first, from preschool to twelfth grade. Every. Single. Student. WE understand that diversity means accepting that every person is different and celebrating our differences. WE understand that equity means ensuring that our students are on a level playing field; that each of our students have the tools they need to succeed. WE understand that inclusion means making sure that each and every one of our 17,500 students feels welcome in our classrooms. Is there work to be done? Absolutely. Will our Lakota family continue to strive for this goal? Absolutely.

Over the next few weeks, our board members will determine my replacement and will share that information with you. In the meantime, I will be here, along with our executive team, to support our administrators, teachers and staff through this transition.

It has been an honor to lead Lakota since 2017. While I may be leaving our district, I will never stop supporting our kids and our team.


Matthew J. Miller
