School Firings

GARDNER, Kan. (AP) The superintendent and two other administrators of a northeast Kansas school district have been fired but school board members are not publicly discussing the reasons.

The Kansas City Star reports the Gardner Edgerton board of education voted 4-3 Thursday to fire Superintendent Bill Gilhaus; Lana Gerber, executive director of human resources and administrative services, and Christy Ziegler, executive director of educational services.

The vote came after the board held a closed session at a specially called meeting.

Scott Boden, husband of board member Tresa Boden, told the Star there was no public explanation for the firings.
