The Sioux Falls School District is in the market for a new superintendent.

KSFY-TV is reporting that current Superintendent Brian Maher is leaving at the end of the 2019-20 school year. He made the announcement at a Monday (December 9) press conference.

The superintendent in Sioux Falls currently manages 23 elementary schools, five middle schools, three high schools, an alternative school, a career technical education academy, a project-based learning high school.

The Sioux Falls School District has been in existence since 1871, 18 years prior to South Dakota's statehood.
