Interview could make Kobza official

June 7, 2001

The Eudora Board of Education will hold an interview Thursday for the superintendent vacancy that may lead to a job title change and district-wide responsibility for Marty Kobza.

The board will conduct an hour-long interview with Kobza at 6:30 p.m., at the district office. Kobza, who has served for three years as Eudora High principal, is acting superintendent for the state. He is taking classes through Kansas State University to earn his superintendent certification in August. Kobza expects to complete his doctorate from KSU November 2002.

Following the interview, the board will conduct its monthly meeting. The board will consider 11 employment positions, three job title transfers and one resignation in the district.

Under new business, the board will discuss having a special 7 p.m. meeting June 26 or June 29 for further discussion on a bond issue for a new high school.

The board is considering a bond issue for a $16 million, 500-student high school. If the board votes to move forward, the proposal will go before voters in November.

In old business, the board will discuss starting a campaign steering committee, which will disperse information to the community about the new high school and moving sixth through eighth grades to the current high school. The board will also hear an update on a recent telephone survey by The Research Center, Wichita. The center conducted a survey in April, and recent results showed the Eudora community was in favor of building a new high school.

In other old business, the board will discuss:

the 2001-2002 fiscal year budget.

designating Martin Luther King's birthday as

a legal holiday for classified employees.

searching for a new food service director.

updating a summer project list.
