School board meets in special session
The Baldwin School Board met Monday night in executive session to discuss personnel. It is unknown if any action was taken regarding a new superintendent.
The meeting was called Monday morning. School Board President Lonnie Broers told the Signal that contract discussions did occur, but declined to elaborate. The board's list of interviewed finalists for the position to be vacated by retiring Supt. James White has been narrowed to one.
Three more superintendent candidates have taken jobs elsewhere. Alexa Posny, Deputy Commissioner of Education for Learning Services at the Kansas State Department of Education, announced Friday that she has accepted an appointment from the U.S. Department of Education to serve as the Director of the department's Office for Special Education Programs in Washington, D.C. Ralph Teran, an assistant superintendent in Wichita, has taken the superintendent's job in Grandview, Mo. Steve Adams, superintendent at the Highland and Midway-Denton joint school districts, accepted the job as superintendent of the Piper School District in Kansas City, Kans. Linda Aldridge has also taken a job, but details are unknown.
The remaining candidate from the Baldwin district's latest group of finalists is Paul Dorathy, Southern Lyon County superintendent. School board members traveled to his district last week.
The Signal will update this story as more information is made available.
