(April 15, 2016) St. Louis, MO… EducationPlus Executive Director Dr. Don Senti has announced his retirement effective June 30th, 2016. Dr. Senti has worked in public education in a variety of capacities for almost 50 years. Prior to EducationPlus, he served as the superintendent in the Parkway and Clayton School Districts. “I’ve been blessed to work with great students and educators throughout my career,” said Dr. Senti. “But I’m 71 now, and I’m really looking forward to retirement and spending more quality time at Busch Stadium cheering on our Cardinals.”
During his five year tenure, Dr. Senti led the rebranding efforts that transformed the Cooperating School Districts (CSD) into EducationPlus. “We want to thank Don for his years of dedicated service to EdPlus,” said Executive Board President Dr. Tom Muzzey. “His efforts have increased the regional influence of our cooperative and helped to improve the educational outcomes for the more than 300,000 students we serve in our member districts.”
The EducationPlus Executive Board has selected former CSD Executive Director Dr. John Urkevich to serve as interim Executive Director as they conduct a thorough search for a permanent replacement.
