Kearney, Mo., July 14, 2021: Dr. Matthew Miller has tendered his resignation as Superintendent of Schools for Kearney School District effective July 1, 2021. The Board of Education has accepted his resignation.
In a little more than a month, nearly 3,600 of our children will be coming to our schools, ready to pursue their hopes and dreams. For their sake, our top priority is to ensure that teaching and learning continue uninterrupted. We must always be in a position to provide the world-class educational experience that every student needs and deserves.
We continue to focus on meeting the needs of students, families and staff members. The Board of Education will be appointing an interim superintendent as soon as possible. We will also prioritize identifying, vetting and selecting a candidate for the permanent superintendent position. This process will be done in collaboration with our staff, students, families and community members.

They are supported and led by a cohesive, dedicated team of school administrators. We are constantly amazed by our talented students and their achievements.
