After two years on the job, Visalia Unified School District Superintendent Tamara Ravalin announced Friday that she is retiring, citing health reasons.
“I am grateful and honored to have served the students, families, and staff of Visalia Unified School District during this extraordinary time in our lives. Like many of you, I have used this time to reflect on my family and faith. Over the last few months, I have developed some health challenges, which can be remedied with appropriate medical care and physical therapy. My decision to retire from full-time employment will allow me to take care of myself and my family.”
Ravalin will continue to serve through Aug. 31, which will mark the last day of a 40-year career in education.
