USD 460 will have a newly elected board member, Susan Lamb, joining the board on July 1.
As a new board member, Lamb will go through a training seminar for new school board members across the state.
“I have some time and need to do a lot of reading and get caught up on some of the issues. I will be attending a training that is for new members across Kansas,” she said.
Lamb brings nearly two decades of teaching experience to the table and an unconventional approach to challenges.
