Buskirk has worked for the school district for 19 years.
Yohey has served as the district’s superintendent since 2016 and has been in public education for 33 years.
Prior to Lebanon, Yohey served as superintendent in the Oak Hills Local School District and the Ross Local School District.
Yohey said he notified the Lebanon school board in October.
Asked why he left mid-year, Yohey said, “That’s when the opportunity presented itself.”
“I was planning to retire at the end of the school year from education,” he added.
Yohey will be rejoining Donna Davis Norris, formerly a Lebanon school board member. Norris is director of the association.
