MOSS POINT — Moss Point schools Superintendent Maggie Griffin is planning to retire on June 30.
Griffin says she has notified her staff and the school board.
The Vancleave native, who has 35 years of education experience, came to the district in 2012 from an assistant superintendent job at Laurel School District.
Griffin earned $128,000 per year.
During her tenure, Griffin began to offer free breakfast for every student and worked to improve the schools’ low state test scores.
Griffin replaced Greg Ladner, a retired superintendent from Pearl Public School District who was tapped as interim superintendent when former boss Kim Staley’s contract expired June 30, 2011.
The school board is expected to meet this week.
