The Greenport school board is expected to vote on a resolution Wednesday night accepting Superintendent Michael Comanda’s intent to retire next August, according to the draft meeting agenda.

Mr. Comanda said Monday that all questions and concerns will be addressed during Wednesday’s regular school board meeting and declined further comment. His retirement would go into effect Aug. 31, 2014 if approved, according to the agenda.

He first started working in the district about 12 years ago as high school principal and became superintendent in 2009.

Over the course of his tenure, the elementary school was named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 and U.S. News & World ranked the high school in April as one of the best high schools in the nation.

Last year, the New Suffolk school board hired Mr. Comanda as the pre-K through sixth-grade district’s superintendent. Mr. Comanda said Monday he currently plans to remain in that part-time position.
