The IKM-Manning Community School District has approved of entering a share-agreement with Tri-Center Community School District, with their superintendent Dr. Angela Huseman for the following school year. Current IKM-Manning superintendent Trevor Miller announced his resignation last year, due to accepting a new superintendent role in a different district.

I especially look forward to forging new relationships with the IKM-Manning District so we can work together to get the students what they need to continue to be successful.” Pending official contract negotiations, Huseman will take over the leadership position on July 1.
