Farley, 63, took the job in 2010 after years of tumult, including several recall campaigns and a teachers' strike. He's the ninth superintendent in the district's 49-year history.
"I became superintendent in June of 2010 and was asked to stabilize the district, return the focus back to instruction and kids, and to earn back the trust of our employee groups," Farley said.
"I intend to retire from district service on June 30, 2014 and [I want] to say I’m so proud to say I’ve done this work."
According to a press release from the district, trustees will discuss plans for finding a replacement, starting in January.
Patch will have more information from tonight's meeting.
