ISHPEMING — Ishpeming Public Schools Superintendent Carrie Meyer remains in her post after all.

Meyer, who earlier this year announced she would retire effective September 1, recently asked the IPS to rescind her retirement notice. She will continue her current contract, until June 30, 2024.

“After I sent in my retirement notice, I started to feel like I wasn’t ready,” Meyer said in an email. “I want to continue my work in Ishpeming for a while longer.”

She indicated that she wanted to see the bond projects through to completion. They include:

≥ the installation of a new playground at Ishpeming Middle School and Birchview Elementary School, as well as for the Hematyke preschool program;

≤ the renovation of the old Ishpeming high school gymnasium;

≤ the installation of a new roof at the secondary school;

≤ an upgrade to new LED lighting in colleges and high schools; and

≤ the installation of new exterior doors to colleges and high schools.

Meyer said the district is also working to create a child care program for newborns through school-aged youth. He also plans to expand his Farm to School program with Partridge Creek Farm.

Another initiative, she said, is moving forward with at least two new computer/technical education programs – one in education to develop the district’s elementary, secondary and early childhood educators, and another to align with the Farm to School program.

Prior to coming to IPS, Meyer served as Superintendent of Schools in the L’Anse area for over two years. Previously, she spent eight years as a math teacher and eight years as headmistress, then trained with the former superintendent of schools at L’Anse.
