The Kansas State Board of Education began their monthly meeting at a historic location Wednesday morning.
The board met at the Brown V. Board of Education National Historic site.
Before their regular meeting began, Board Chairwoman Jana Shaver delivered a statement from the former schools’ steps to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the landmark decision.
The actual anniversary date is this Saturday, May 17th.
From there, the board convened in the auditorium to conduct their two-day meeting.
Topics included the search process for a new education commissioner, Dr. Diane Debacker’s last day was Wednesday. She resigned to take another job in the United Arab Emirates.
The board voted to hire a search firm out of Nebraska to find a new education commissioner and hope to have one in place by November.
