The superintendent of schools in Geary County will be in place for another three years.
USD 475 school board members voted Aug. 2 to extend Dr. Reginald Eggleston’s contract for three years, the maximum length allowed by Kansas statute.
According to a district release, the decision was based on results of Dr. Eggleston’s leadership in keeping the schools open during the previous school year, despite the pandemic. He’s also credited with the district’s financial stability, partnerships with Fort Riley and Cloud County Community College and the opening of the new Junction City High School Aug. 25, according to Board Vice President Jim Schmidt.
Eggleston’s contract runs through June 30, 2024.
