Superintendent submits letter of resignation
December 16, 2020
Three Forks Superintendent Jeff Elliott has submitted a letter of resignation to the School Board of Trustees.
In his third year in the position, Elliott said Monday he would be leaving when he fulfills his contract on July 1.
The School Board voted Tuesday to table the vote on accepting the letter of resignation. The board had a brief executive session before tabling the issue.
Elliott said he has some family things he has to take care of, and eventually will get back into education.
In his letter of resignation to the board, Elliott said it has been an extremely challenging three years, but also very rewarding.
“I am completely confident in everything we were able to accomplish in the short time I was here. The students and staff at Three Forks Schools will always have a special place in my heart as I move on to other challenges in my life,” he said. “Three Forks Schools will continue to excel because of the amazing people that work in the district. From the principals to the substitutes, this district has incredible dedicated and talented people that truly care about educating the children of Three Forks. This is a tremendous amount of pride from graduates to current staff and students that is felt in the building or wherever “Wolves” are present. It was rewarding to be part of that, if even for a short time.”
Prior to accepting the position in Three Forks, Elliott was the Principal at Fergus High School in Lewistown.
