The chairman of the Kansas House education committee says his panel won't vote on a school consolidation measure.

The president of a south-central school board has been elected to the leadership of the Kansas Association of School Boards.

A recent delegate assembly in Wichita chose Don Shimkus, of Oxford, as the association’s president-elect designee. He will begin serving as president-elect on July 1 and serve as president on July 1, 2015.

Shimkus says he will work to ensure that all Kansas communities have the resources they need for public education.

The association has nearly 5,000 members representing school boards, community colleges and technical schools.
