Superintendent Jami Jo Thompson announced Monday that she would be staying with the Norfolk Public Schools district.
Thompson was named a finalist for the superintendent of Lee’s Summit R-7 school district in Missouri on Jan. 2. She was among three other candidates for the position.
Lee’s Summit announced its selection for a different finalist Monday.
Thompson sent a staff email after the Missouri school district’s selection, announcing that she would be staying, said Sarah Dittmer, Norfolk Public Schools communications director.
"Norfolk Public Schools is an amazing district, and I am proud to continue as the superintendent," Thompson said in an official statement. "The students, staff and families in Norfolk are wonderful people. I look forward to continuing our strategic planning efforts, supporting high-quality instruction across the district and working with the community to address our facility needs via a potential bond issue."
