Here are your Sunday morning headlines:
1. Though his post-retirement plans remain unknown, Pat Skorkowsky says he will not be a superintendent again.
He says that when he leaves at the end of the month, he’s done with being in charge of anything.
The nation’s fifth-largest district grew by more than 5,000 students during his four-year tenure at the helm. But staff morale is low and the district has seen two consecutive budget deficits.
Skorkowsky ultimately leaves with a bag of mixed reviews and accomplishments.
2. Some nearby national parks are getting improvements thanks to help from The Fund For People In Parks.
Dantes View, a popular overlook at Death Valley, was recently renovated. A park spokeswoman said that without private donations, the work would not have gotten done until 2023 at the earliest.
Great Basin National Park got a new telescope.
And a permanent display for a 133-year-old rifle found leaning against a tree in the park should make its debut this fall.
