Charles City School Superintendent Fisher to Resign Monday

After what will be four years at the helm, Charles City Schools Superintendent Mike Fisher is resigning, effective June 30th.

Fisher is expected to make the move official at tonight’s (03.07) School Board meeting in preparation to take the same position with his hometown of Oskaloosa. If his contract is approved next week as anticipated, Fisher will become Oskaloosa Community School District Superintendent July 1st.

During his tenure with Charles City, Fisher focused on student achievement growth, which he noted in December, when the district report card showed improved test and achievement scores in the Iowa School Performance Profile.

Fisher added that while there’s still work to be done to better their scores, they’re also trying to help students become better people.

It was also in December that Fisher said he was contacted about the Oskaloosa opening and asked to consider applying to be superintendent in his hometown. He added that,  “There are only a handful of communities that could pull me away from the incredible work we are doing in Charles City, and Oskaloosa is one of them.”

Fisher joined the Charles City Community School District in July of 2018.
