After a special meeting held Sept. 7, Chapman’s USD 473 Board of Education voted unanimously to place Superintendent Jerry Hodson on administrative leave. 

USD 473 Board President Brenda Edleston confirmed Thursday that Hodson had been placed on leave, but was unable to comment on why.

“This is a personnel issue and all parties’ rights to privacy are protected to shield the parties from rumors and speculation,” she said.

Principal of Chapman High School Kevin Suther was named interim superintendent by the board after members voted in favor of placing Hodson on leave.
