WAUKEE, IOWA – In the wake of a scandalous affair in which tax dollars were allegedly mis-appropriated in the Waukee school district, a new superintendent has been hired to lead that organization.
A contract for Waukeee schools superintendent has been offered to Dr. Brad Buck; he assumes the duties of superintendent for Waukee CSD beginning July 1, 2019. Dr. Buck is currently the superintendent at Cedar Rapids Community School District and has served in that role since 2015. Dr. Buck began his career in education as a classroom teacher and then held administrative roles in various districts, in addition to serving as the director of the Iowa Department of Education.
According to a statement from Wendy Liskey, Board of Education President, “Dr. Buck has the knowledge and experience to move our district forward, engage the community, and support and respect our staff and students we serve in Waukee CSD. With the support and feedback during the interview process from staff, students, and community members, we are confident in the decision the Board has made to hire Dr. Buck as our next superintendent of Waukee CSD.”
A note from Dr. Buck:
There is much to celebrate in the Waukee Community School District and I return eager to engage with and sustain the exciting efforts underway, including the opening of Waukee’s second high school. I also look forward to fostering trust and developing new relationships with staff, families, and the community. Observing and honoring the important work underway in classrooms will be equally critical to engaging with staff around their hopes and desires for the future. I’m deeply excited about the work ahead and the opportunity to lead the Waukee CSD staff as we work to positively impact the academic experiences for all Waukee CSD students.
Thank you for your continued support of Waukee CSD.
