USD 305 Superintendent Finalist: William Biermann

The second of four superintendent of schools finalists for USD 305 Salina was introduced to the public on Tuesday afternoon.

Several interested citizens were introduced to William Biermann, the current superintendent at USD 352 Goodland at the USD 305 district office in Salina. Biermann now joins David McGehee as one of the four finalists for the top position at USD 305 Salina.

Biermann tells KSAL News it’s Salina’s excellence and pride in education that drew him to applying for the position.


Biermann has a total of 23 years in education, currently serving as superintendent of schools in Goodland USD 352. He has served as superintendent for 10 years in two districts (Goodland and Catholic Diocese of Dodge City), 4 years as chief financial officer at Southwest Plains Regional Service Center and 3 years as a high school principal (Holcomb USD 363). Prior to that he taught secondary math, computers, accounting as well as coached and directed plays (Wichita County USD 467 and Santa Fe Trail USD 434).

Biermann takes great pride in his accomplishments at USD 352 Goodland.


Like yesterday with McGehee, Biermann’s formal interview comes later tonight with the USD 305 Board of Education.

The third finalist for USD 305 Salina Superintendent of Schools will be announced tomorrow morning. Check the district website for more information. Interim Superintendent Dr. James R. Hardy has led the district since July 2017.
