Board sticks to decision on license
The Kansas Board of Education voted Feb. 13 to deny former Tonganoxie Elementary School principal Jerry Daskoski's petition for reconsideration of an earlier license revocation.
Daskoski, a 16-year administrator with the Tonganoxie school district, resigned in December, citing the need to spend more time with his family.
But on Jan. 9, the state board of education revoked Daskoski's professional license because of felony theft charges lodged against him in November 2005. The theft occurred at a store in Wichita.
Daskoski entered into a diversion agreement and completed the required terms, which means he was not convicted of the crime.
The 54-year-old Daskoski would have been eligible for retirement in July 2011, under the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System.
