The Vernonia School District would like to announce that current Superintendent Dr. Ken Cox has accepted a position as Superintendent of the Minidoka County Joint School District #331, located in Rupert, Idaho. The Minidoka district serves 4000 students in four elementary schools, two middle schools, and a high school, as well as alternative middle and high schools.
“I am grateful for the time I have spent in Vernonia and feel that, though we have faced many challenges together, we have accomplished much, particularly in the past six years. Carol and I are proud to be able to say that we were part of Vernonia’s recovery following the flood of 2007,” said Dr. Cox.
Cox and his wife Carol, have three children and seven grandchildren. One advantage of this move is that it will put them much closer to their family.
