The Shawnee Mission School Board takes an initial step toward replacing retiring Superintendent Gene Johnson during a special board meeting tomorrow. The board will interview four search firms in a public meeting that begins at 7:30 a.m. in the board room of the administration building.
Each firm has been allotted an hour and fifteen minutes for its interview with the last session beginning at 11:15 a.m. The board is expected to hire the winning company at the Nov. 12 board meeting.
Dr. Johnson announced his retirement in September, effective next summer. He was hired as superintendent in 2008. He has spent 26 years in the Shawnee Mission district. While Johnson was hired from within the district, his predecessor, Dr. Marjorie Kaplan, was an outside hire. She had been a superintendent in Arizona before Shawnee Mission and returned to work in Arizona after she left the district.
A nationwide search is planned for Dr. Johnson’s replacement with the intention of his successor being named by next spring.
