Lakeville Area Public Schools' superintendent has announced plans to resign by the end of the school year. Lisa Snyder will formally announce her resignation at Tuesday's school board meeting.

Snyder's last day with the district is set for June 30.

In the coming weeks, the school district will decide on how to proceed with its search.

"Please know that I am fully committed to the work in the months ahead and will support you in any way throughout the remainder of the school year," she said in a letter to the staff. "Please let me know how I can continue to support you and your work."

Snyder, a Winona native, came to Lakeville from the Merrill Area Public Schools in Wisconsin, where she served for two years as district superintendent. Before that, Snyder worked as a high school English teacher.

Snyder took over for Gary Amoroso during a time when the LakeĀ­ville district had closed an elementary school and cut jobs in order to manage a tight budget.
