The superintendent for the Park City School District has been selected to lead the Utah Education Network.

Ray Timothy will take over the position of chief executive officer at UEN starting Oct. 1. He replaces Mike Petersen, who resigned in January to accept a faculty position at Utah State University.

UEN provides network, application and support services to public education, higher education and libraries. The network operates as a public/private partnership and connects more than 750,000 students and 61,000 educators across Utah.

In a statement, Timothy said he's excited to begin his new position.

"I have always considered UEN to be one of Utah's greatest assets. It has a strong record of excellence. I am looking forward to working with all stakeholders to continue to advance Utah's educational technology and enhance UEN's position as one of the nation's premiere education networks," said Timothy, who is also a former superintendent of the Millard County School District and a deputy superintendent of the Utah State Office of Education.

Brenda Hales, state associate superintendent at the Utah State Office of Education who is the public education co-chair of the UEN board, said Timothy's leadership qualities will be an asset to the organization.

"Ray Timothy's extensive experience with school districts and at the state level qualifies him to work collaboratively with Utah schools, universities and libraries. We're confident he will bring expert leadership to UEN's award-winning staff," she said in a statement.

Park City will soon start a search for a new superintendent.
