Former Gardner Edgerton School District administrator, Christy Ziegler, appeared on Kansas City’s Fox 4 News on Aug. 13.
The former USD 231 executive director of educational services now serves as the Shawnee Mission School District Director of Technology.
All incoming freshman in the SMSD will receive Apple laptops this year.
Ziegler was one of three USD 231 administrators who were let go by a divided school board prior to the end of the 2013-2014 school year. Lana Gerber, former USD 231 executive director of administrative services, is now the principal of Leawood Middle School in the Blue Valley School District. Former superintendent Bill Gilhaus was also let go last spring.
USD 231 paid all three administrators through the remainder of the last school year. The board hired Pam Stranathan to serve as interim-superintendent. She will also serve as interim-superintendent during the 2014-2015 school year.
