FAIRFIELD — After 42 years in education, Fairfield-Suisun School District Superintendent Jacki Cottingim-Dias has announced her plan to retire in June.
Cottingim-Dias, 63, has spent the last five years as Fairfield-Suisun’s chief and her tenure will end June 30. She made the announcement at Thursday night’s board meeting. She said the timing was due to an item on the closed-session agenda that dealt with her position and wanted to quell any rumors before they started.
“Last year I looked at retirement and got talked into another year. And I’m happy I did,” Cottingim-Dias said after the meeting. “I’m going back to my research roots and will do some writing.”
