The Lebanon school board named Robert Buskirk interim superintendent, effective Jan.1.

Buskirk, the district’s human resources director, will replace Superintendent Todd Yohey.

“The board also plans to begin a superintendent search sometime during the first quarter of the new calendar year,” according to a press release.

On Monday, the board voted to accept Yohey’s resignation for purposes of retirement.

Yohey will be associate director for the Southwest Ohio Computer Association.

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.
