Parents, Staff, Students, and Community members,
Hello, and welcome to the Waconda School District website. I am Troy Damman, USD 272 Superintendent of Schools. This is my 27th year in education. I received my undergraduate degree from Fort Hays State University and taught Industrial Technology for 18 years and coached cross-country, track, and soccer for 9 years. I earned a master’s degree in educational administration from Baker University and have had experience as an athletic director, PreK-12 principal, and superintendent. I received my district level certification from Fort Hays State University.
I have spent most of my educational career in rural Kansas working with families, schools, and communities to provide the highest quality of education possible. I enjoy being actively involved in both the school and community and believe that it is important to maintain a solid working relationship with the city, civic groups, and the schools. Working together we will develop a stronger and more vibrant community that people take pride in and want to consider it home.
One of my goals is to be transparent and strive towards maintaining and improving upon the connections and communications between our staff, district and our community. It is also my goal to ensure that our schools continue to provide the exceptional educational experience for our young people as we prepare for them for their next step whether that is college, career, or military.
I look forward to being a part of the school and community.
Superintendent, USD #272
