Ending a three-year stint, Dr. Scott Smith believes he is leaving the Gasconade County R-1 School District with a sense of accomplishment. Smith has two weeks remaining as the system's superintendent, but is opting to take that time for vacation -- while still on call as the district's leader. In July, he will officially take over as superintendent for the Jackson, Missouri, public schools, in southeast Missouri. Geoff Neill formally takes over July 1 as the new R-1 superintendent, after serving the same duties for the Sturgeon, Missouri, school district.
