Ten years after first coming to Cody schools, Tim Foley is now leading the district.
Last Wednesday afternoon school board trustees unanimously approved Foley as the interim superintendent, effective immediately. His contract runs through June 30, 2022.
“I want to have a strong, productive school year and support the board and their goals, one of those goals being to find a new superintendent,” he said. “We want to look at students’ performance, shore up academic gaps due to closures,” and COVID-19 restrictions.
Foley has served as the assistant superintendent since 2016. Prior to that he was the principal of Cody Middle School for five years. He grew up in Powell and graduated from Powell High School, working in his home district starting in the mid-’90s until making the move to Cody.
The vote came just five days after trustees approved the immediate retirement of superintendent Peg Monteith. Her contract was to run through June 2022.
