USD 364 Superintendent Mullins Announces Departure


Marysville USD 364 Superintendent Bill Mullins, via social media Monday, announced his pending leave from the district in order to focus on his health, as he continues a battle with cancer.

Mullins indicated that he had advised the board at a special meeting last week of his plans to leave sometime in the next few months, allowing for an interim superintendent next school year, with a candidate search for a full-time replacement for hire beginning July 2020. Another special board meeting is planned this Wednesday evening at 6. Agenda items include personnel, as well as contingency and succession planning with a representative of the Kansas Association of School Boards.

In other business, selection of a construction manager at risk will be considered.
