Moffat County School District Superintendent Brent Curtis sent the following message to Moffat County School Board members on Wednesday. “Last evening, I received a call that I have been named by the Board of Education of Montrose County School District as one of the finalists for the superintendent position in that district. I was not looking to make a change. However, in early June Assistant Executive Director of CASB, Mark Devoti, called me regarding my potential interest in pursuing the opening in Montrose. I decided to submit my application. The final selection process should conclude by July 1. I am honored to be considered a finalist for the Montrose position. The district encompasses over 6300 students; thirteen schools, second largest school district on the Western Slope, and over a 50 million dollar budget. My career aspiration has always been to be a superintendent of school. While I am grateful and content to be Superintendent here in Moffat County School District, Montrose offers a prospect of an expanded professional opportunity and experience. It would be familiar territory for my wife and I, as I had spent 23 years in Delta County School District, which borders Montrose County. As indicated this past year, I have had no interest in applying for any superintendent openings. My wife and I have been eager and committed to Craig, Colorado. Please be assured that if I am not selected in Montrose, I will continue to faithfully and fully perform the duties of superintendent with complete passion and enthusiasm in order to fulfill the goals and objectives of Moffat County School District.” Pictured: Brent Curtis.
