Luna taps educators, controller for guidance

State Superintendent of Schools-elect Tom Luna – the first non-educator ever to be elected to that post – has asked three Idaho school district superintendents and the state controller to help him transition into the office, now held by Democrat Marilyn Howard. Luna named Boise Supt. Stan Olson, Genesee Supt. David Neumann, Madison Supt. Geoffrey Thomas and outgoing state Controller Keith Johnson to his transition team.

“I’m honored to have such distinguished people working with me to help improve the quality of education in Idaho,” Luna said. “We ran a very issue-oriented campaign, and I’ve asked my transition team to help me design a Department of Education that delivers on our promises and meets the needs of our children and our schools for years to come.”
