The Lee County superintendent of schools announced a significant decision on Thursday.

According to a release, Dr. Christopher Bernier announced he will not run for the upcoming superintendent of schools position.

Bernier noted his decision is “rooted in deep respect for our School Board and the dedicated students, families, teachers, and staff that collectively shape our thriving educational community.”

Bernier nevertheless intends to continue leading the school district for the remainder of his term.
