Local focus groups to have input

 

• Special to the Leader & Times

 

Kansas State Board of Education invites the 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

7 p.m.

Southwest Plains Regional Service Center

810 West Lark Ave.

Sublette

Mrs. Cauble will also conduct the following focus groups:

• Wednesday, June 4

7 p.m.

Colby High School Auditorium

1890 S. Franklin

Colby, Kansas

• Thursday, June 5

Great Bend USD 428 District Offices

All sessions are free and open to the public.
