North Springs Charter High School Principal Lisa Stueve has announced her intention to resign at the end of the 2012-2013 academic year, citing family health issues, the Sandy Springs school announced Wednesday.

In a letter to faculty, parents and supporters, Michael Granish, chair of the North Springs Governance Board, stated Stueve plans to resign in June.

“Dr. Stueve has served North Springs for five years and guided us through the first successful Georgia high school Charter renewal process,” Granish wrote. “We want to assure you that North Springs will continue to flourish as we seek a new principal and we want to express our sincere appreciation to Dr. Stueve for her dedication and commitment to making North Springs the best it can be.

“As many of you know, Dr. Stueve has had a challenging year with the health issues of her parents and now the recent death of her mother just a few weeks ago. She has decided with her daughter’s impending graduation from high school and becoming a college freshman that she is going to take some time off to care for her father and refocus her energy on her family. While she has already been approached with other options, she is deciding to take her time and we respect her wishes.”

Stueve’s early announcement to resign will give the school time to find a replacement by July, when the new principal would start.

“Fulton County Schools has a process in place for selecting a new principal and we want to share that with you,” Granish wrote. “Over the next few weeks the faculty and parents will be asked to complete a survey to indicate the leadership qualities and educational priorities they are looking for in a principal. A composite will be created, the job posted and then candidates’ applications will be screened by Fulton County before the interviewing process begins. It is hoped a new principal will be announced sometime in May.”
