The only superintendent the Canyons School District has ever had, in its four year history, shocked board members by announcing his resignation, effective June 30.

Dr. David Dody said he has accepted a position with a Salt Lake-based, private education consulting company.

Dr. Dody was hired in 2008, after voters approved creation of the Canyons District, in a split from the Jordan School District.

He helped manage the division of a billion dollars worth of assets, between the two districts.
