The school board is expected to accept Orzel’s resignation at its scheduled March 18 meeting, she said.
Orzel has been superintendent since July 1, and with the district for 8 years. She has not disclosed her new employer, because that district has yet to announce her appointment.
In a letter to the board, Orzel thanked its members, saying their collaboration contributed greatly to her success as a superintendent.
"Without each and every one of you, I would not have become the administrator I am today," Orzel wrote. "For that, I thank you, and I want you to know that no matter where my road may lead me, I will forever be grateful for the experiences that I have had here at 142."
