Lansing board still discussing superintendent

March 1, 2000

The Lansing school board continues to mull over candidates for the job of district superintendent.

The board met for 2 1/2 hours Monday night in executive session, but took no action following the meeting, according to Paul Mengel, board clerk.

"I'm assuming that they won't say anything public until they have finalized their negotiations," Mengel said.

Four finalists visited the district in mid-February, to meet with staff members and undergo interviews with the board. One finalist, Todd Covault, assistant superintendent at Emporia, withdrew his name from consideration.

The remaining candidates are Joan Pritchard, assistant superintendent at Goddard; Jim Robbins, superintendent at Caney; and Sharon Zoellner, assistant superintendent at DeSoto.

The school board's next meeting will be next Monday.
