No leadership change for Atchison Co schools
07/12/2019

(KAIR)--No change in leadership for the Board of Education for Atchison County’s USD 377.

That was decided during the school board’s July 10 meeting, the first of the new school year, when organization for the new year traditionally takes place.

Instead, Nancy Keith will continue to serve as President, while Barbara Chapman serves as Vice-President.

Superintendent Dr. Andrew Gaddis told MSC News the board July 10 approved a resolution extending the term of the current officers until January. That move will allow the board officer elections to align with new Kansas statute guidelines passed during the last Legislative session.

The law moves the organization of officers from the school board meeting in July to the first meeting of the board on or after the second Monday in January of each year. A school board, during that January meeting, also has the option of scheduling the organization session at a time that falls after that meeting, meaning organization could still be done in July, once voted upon in January.

The legislative change was made to allow time for new board members to be installed in January, following an election, prior to the selection of officers.
