Anchorage School Superintendent Looking for Exit

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The head of Alaska’s largest school district is shopping for another job less than a year after moving north.

The Des Moines, Iowa, school district announced Saturday that Anchorage school Superintendent Jim Browder is a finalist for the job there.

Browder in an email to Anchorage School District employees Friday said he was considering a move from Alaska to be closer to a daughter and grandson in Georgia, who “have been experiencing some very severe medical issues which have not gotten better.”

“I cannot in good conscience continue to live several thousand miles away when my family members need me to be closer to them as we face these issues,” he said.

Browder is the former head of the Lee County School District in Fort Myers, Fla.
