Central Unified Superintendent Mike Berg announced his retirement to staff on Monday after 10 years with the Fresno school district and more than 30 years in public education.
District spokesman Cary Catalano confirmed Berg’s intentions Monday afternoon. Catalano said Berg plans to leave his position at the end of 2015.
Berg, 53, worked as Fresno Unified’s facilities administrator for 21 years before coming to Central Unified. He started out as the district’s transportation manager before taking on other roles including chief operations officer and chief business officer.
He was picked as superintendent five years ago to replace Marilou Ryder. The board of trustees voted unanimously to hire Berg over seven other candidates after a full day of final interviews.
There was no immediate word on a timetable for the district’s hiring of Berg’s successor.
