KS Board of Ed Seeks Input on New Commissioner


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas State Board of Education members plan to have meetings across the state to ask their constituents what experience and skills they see as essential for a new education commissioner. The board is describing the meetings as focus groups. One is scheduled for Thursday evening (6:30) at Bonner Springs High School. It will be hosted by the local state board member, Democrat Janet Waugh. The board says several more focus groups are planned. The board is searching for a new commissioner because Diane DeBacker stepped down from the job last week to become an adviser to the director general of the Abu Dhabi Education Council in the United Arab Emirates. During the search, Deputy Commissioner Brad Neuenswander will serve as acting commissioner.
