Dear Silver Falls Families and Friends,

I’m writing to tell you that I am retiring from Silver Falls School District on June 30th.

Retirement is a big decision, and this choice is the right one for me at this time in my life. I have enjoyed each of my 31 years serving Silver Falls School District across many teaching and administrative positions. I have always felt supported as a member of our incredible community.

The school board will soon begin the process for selection of the next superintendent.

This school district has the finest educators around — that includes our administrators, our teachers, and our support staff. I leave the district in good hands. Moving forward, I am certain this district will continue its long tradition of high performance, and of supporting the needs of each student. I wish each of you my best.

Andy Bellando
