Kansas State Board of Education Invites Public to Participate in Focus Groups as Search for New Education Commissioner Begins
The Kansas State Board of Education will host focus groups across the state to gather constituent input as the search for Kansas’ new Commissioner of Education gets underway. Former Education Commissioner Dr. Diane DeBacker submitted her resignation in April to accept a position as the Advisor to the Director General of the Abu Dhabi Education Council.
In the preliminary phase of the search process, a series of focus groups will be conducted in several State Board Districts to gather constituent feedback as to what they believe to be the most critical educational issues in Kansas, and the experiences and skills they feel are essential for this leadership position.
The first focus group, led by Board Vice-Chair Sally Cauble, representing District 5, will take place:
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Southwest Plains Regional Service Center
810 West Lark Ave
Mrs. Cauble will also conduct the following focus groups:
Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Colby High School Auditorium
1890 S Franklin
Thursday, June 5, 2014
Great Bend USD 428 District Offices
201 Patton Rd
Great Bend, Kansas
All sessions are free and open to the public.
