NACS board to consider retirement of superintendent Chris Himsel

Chris Himsel
Northwest Allen County Schools

The Northwest Allen County School Board of Trustees will consider the retirement of its current superintendent at its Monday meeting, according to the agenda sent out by the board.

Chris Himsel has been on medical leave since December and the board appointed an interim superintendent, Steve Yager, in January.

According to the agenda, if the board accepts Himsel’s retirement, he will remain on medical leave until June 30, utilizing accrued sick days.

NACS may continue to employ a temporary superintendent, but will be able to begin a search for a new superintendent right away.
