Jayne retiring at Gwinn

GWINN — Tom Jayne, superintendent of Gwinn Area Community Schools, plans to retire in February.

Jayne was hired at Gwinn in July 2015 after serving as superintendent of Iron Mountain Public Schools since 2011. He told the Marquette Mining Journal his decision was due to professional and personal reasons, and not the Gwinn district’s financial woes.

The district is considering budget reductions totaling about $550,000 this school year. AJ Filizetti, director of finance and human resources, was terminated in August.
