GREENDALE — Dr. Gary Kiltz has resigned from his position as superintendent of Greendale Schools following a "breach of fiduciary responsibility."

The Greendale Board of Education requested Dr. Kiltz's resignation after an outside investigation, which documented a pattern of him using his district-issued credit card for personal purchases. Dr. Kiltz has agreed to pay back the district.

The personal purchases were discovered by Greendale School's internal financial control processes. Based on the findings of the district and independent investigations, the Board of Education determined it was in the best interest of the district to request his resignation.

"While the request for resignation is not reflective of Dr. Kiltz's performance in important areas of district goal setting and strategic planning, student learning and achievement, equity and inclusion initiatives, or the facilities referendum, his actions are a violation of the trust between the office of the superintendent and the public," said Mr. Joe Crapitto, president of the Greendale Board of Education. "Dr. Kiltz has not upheld his fiduciary responsibilities to the district and community."

As the Board of Education looks for a new superintendent, the district will be led by Kim Amidzich, Director of Curriculum & Instruction.

Kiltz joined Greendale Schools as Superintendent in July 2016.
