Committee formed to consider school changes

How education will be delivered in the Kingman Unified School District was the focus Wednesday night when district administrators met with 15 people to form a superintendent's committee on use of school facilities.

The committee will examine possible building configurations until September and make a recommendation to the KUSD Governing Board in October.

Committee members will spend the next six months researching what other districts are doing, taking useful information off the Internet, and looking at student demographics before making a recommendation.

"We're at a unique place in our history," said Mike Ford, acting superintendent of the KUSD.

"We can do anything we want (in district configuration), but we need to make sure it will be best for the kids."

The first order of business was to elect a committee chairman.

Jack Burden, division chairman of English and History at Kingman High School North, nominated his wife, Cindy, a math and physical education teacher at Kingman Junior High School for the position, and she was approved to head the committee.

In turn, Burden was nominated and named co-chairman of the committee.
