The IKM-Manning Community School District Board of Education has accepted the resignation of Superintendent Trevor Miller, effective at the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2024. Miller joined the district in 2017 as part of a sharing agreement between Exira-EHK Community Schools and IKM-Manning. With the start of FY25 on July 1, Miller will continue serving as superintendent for Exira-EHK and join the Audubon Community School District in a new sharing agreement. Miller said in his resignation letter that he feels the district is in need of new leadership. His resignation comes a month after a failed attempt to pass an $18.6 million bond referendum for substantial facility improvements within the district. Miller cites the school’s response to the pandemic and their efforts to address the resulting learning gaps, social and emotional learning curriculum expansion, and his work with the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) in the formation of the Templeton Regional Center as highlights of his tenure with IKM-Manning. School officials have indicated their first priority will be determining if the district wants to continue with a shared superintendent arrangement. Once that is decided, the board will begin the search for a new district leader.
