District hires interim business director, approves Hansen’s departure

Mark Taylor
The Gardner Edgerton School Board hired Myrna Morrison as interim business and finance director on May 7.
Superintendent Bill Gilhaus said Morrison’s contract is on a “week-to-week” basis as the district seeks a permanent business and finance director.
She will be paid a consultant’s fee of $70 per hour on an as-needed basis.
Morrison’s career in school finance spans 35 years, and she is the former finance director for the Spring Hill School District.
She has also worked as a financial consultant for other school districts.
The board also formalized former Business and Finance Director Eric Hansen’s departure by approving a list of new hires, retirements, resignations and terminations.
The circumstances surrounding Hansen’s departure unknown, as his name was listed under a header that read, “Non Certified Professionals Retirements/Resignations/Terminations.”
Hansen had been with the district for 15 years.
District officials have been tight-lipped about Hansen’s situation, but confirmed in mid-April he was no longer employed by the district.
School officials have only said that it was an “ongoing personnel issue” that could not be discussed.
Hansen could not be reached for comment.

    The rubber stamp was at work last night just like it is used every week by our city government. Wonder if Hansen is or will be suing the District and I will have to be paying for that too??? Don’t ya just love that “transparent” government you have with your school district and city governments??? And they are getting paid well for all of the back room wheeling and dealing including their millionaire KPERs retirement program which is $8 BILLION in the hole……..another week on the Prairie with our conservative Republicans…………Kiegerl will probably decide to run again………..and get elected!!!!!

    During the May 21, 2012 meeting of the Bonner Springs USD204 Board of Education, members approved a contract for Eric Hansen to become Director of Business & Human Resources. Mr. Hansen replaces former business manager Charles Thomas, who was scheduled to retire this summer.
