After nearly 17 years with the Inman school district, Kevin Case is moving on, as he was named the superintendent of the Emporia school district during a special meeting of the USD 253 board of education Monday.
KVOE Radio in Emporia says Case will take over starting July 1 with a yearly salary of $138,000.
Case has been superintendent with Inman since 1999 and has earned state and national recognition for his efforts to help improve student success, including being named an Apple Distinguished Program to help integrate technology into the classroom.
Attempts to reach Case for comment were unsuccessful.
He will replace Theresa Davidson in Emporia, who is retiring at the end of the school year.
