ISD special education director to retire

The longtime director of St. Joseph County’s special education services will retire in June, following a 34-year career that began as a school psychologist.
Jay Raycraft has worked at St. Joseph County Intermediate School District the past three decades, first as a school psychologist, then as a special education supervisor and finally as head of countywide services for mentally and physically challenged youth.
Raycraft said he expects to come back at some juncture to perform part-time school psychologist work. But his retirement also will include training to become a tennis line judge, with his goal to referee Division 1 college matches.
The longtime educator said next summer will be the first in years that he has not worked as an administrator during the traditional school-year break.
