KENAI, Alaska (AP) - The superintendent of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District has submitted his resignation.

The Peninsula Clarion reports ( Steve Atwater’s resignation is effective Dec. 1.

Atwater will become the associate vice president for K-12 outreach at the University of Alaska, a newly created position.

Atwater, who was Alaska’s Superintendent of the Year in 2013, came to Kenai six years ago from the Lake and Peninsula School District in King Salmon.

The board says it has three options to replace Atwater: conduct a national search for a new hire, appoint a superintendent from internal or external candidates or hire an interim superintendent to fill out the rest of the school year after Atwater leaves.
