Jean Rush, current Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) employee, has been named the East Region KESA executive and began her new role on Monday, January 22. Prior to joining KSDE as an education program consultant on the Special Education and Title Services team in 2020, Rush was the superintendent at Holcomb USD 363 and McLouth USD 342. For those systems in the East currently working with KSDE’s Dr. Jay Scott and Myron Melton, a timeline is being finalized for that work to transition to Rush. KSDE will notify all systems in the East region once that timeline is finalized. Jean can be reached at jrush@ksde.org.

For the Central region KESA executive position, Mindy Bruce, former superintendent at Renwick USD 267 will temporarily fill that role until July 1, 2024, when a permanent executive is named. Bruce can be reached at mbruce@ksde.org. All Central region systems will check in with her this semester.
