2013-06-17 | District office relocating from 10th and Elm
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
At the end of June, the Eudora Schools administrative offices are leaving the building at 10th and Elm and moving to West Resource Center, 1310 Winchester Road. The office will be closed on Thursday, June 27 and Friday, June 28 to complete the move, and will reopen for business at the new location on Monday, July 1.

"The new location will provide us important space for our growing district team," said Superintendent of Schools Don Grosdidier. "It also is a productive, responsible use of West until the building is needed again as a school."
District office employees who have previously worked at 10th and Elm will have offices in the south wing of West. The new location will allow meeting space and flexibility that the 10th and Elm building no longer provides. The move also will free up office and meeting space for transportation, maintenance and grounds teams, who will not be moving to West.
"As we have grown as a district," Grosdidier said, "we have run out of virtually all meeting space in our current location. Our move also will allow the operations teams more space for their work. This move will improve office and meeting space for all of the groups currently working out of the building at 10th and Elm."
The former West Early Childhood Family Center was closed as a school, as a cost savings measure, when all-day kindergarten and preschool moved to Eudora Elementary in 2010. It also currently is home to the Eudora Community Learning Center, the district's IT department and a Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center satellite office. A portion of the building also is leased to the Southeast Kansas Educational Service Center.
The work areas being relocated to West are superintendent, finance, human resources, payroll, communications, board clerk and curriculum and instruction. The phone and fax numbers for the administrative offices will not change with the move.
