Blue Valley School District Hires New Superintendent
The new top person in the Blue Valley School District isn’t exactly new.
Todd White came to Blue Valley as an assistant superintendent last May after leading the North Kansas City School District for four years.
He replaces Tom Trigg who left for a suburban Dallas district last year. He was superintendent for 11 years.
“It was important for us to find a leader who shared our community’s values and goals,” Mike Seitz, Blue Valley Board of Education president, said in a statement. "He is the right choice to take us to the next level of achievement.”
White has a reputation for improving academics. He helped boost test scores while in North Kansas City.
Blue Valley has more than 22,000 students with a 97 percent graduation rate.
White was given a three year contract at $230,000 dollars a year.
He officially takes over July 1.
