Auburn Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo announces retirement

Jeffrey Pirozzolo, Superintendent of the Auburn Enlarged City School District, announced his retirement effective January 5, 2025. His announcement during the Board of Education meeting on January 9 allows for a comprehensive search for his successor.

Serving as superintendent since July 2015, Pirozzolo’s career in the district spans over 19 years, including roles as assistant principal and assistant superintendent for personnel. Expressing his gratitude, Pirozzolo remarked on Auburn’s positive community impact and his intention to remain active in local community boards.

The district seeks community involvement in selecting the new superintendent.
