In February 2019, the Blue Valley Board of Education announced a superintendent succession plan. Dr. Tonya Merrigan, current Deputy Superintendent, will succeed Dr. White as superintendent on July 1, 2020. Dr. White will retire from his 35-year career in education after the 2019-20 school year.


The announcement represents the successful culmination of a succession planning process. Using the community-developed leadership profile, the Board of Education purposefully looked internally for ready talent, present leadership and someone who embraces the values the Blue Valley community expressed as most important.

Merrigan's resume covers a span of 30 years in education that began as a math teacher. Since joining Blue Valley in 1999 as a high school counselor, Merrigan has held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility, including assistant principal, associate principal, district administrator for Virtual Education, director of Student Programs, executive director of Curriculum and Instruction, assistant superintendent of Academic Services and her current position of Deputy Superintendent.


White and Merrigan will spend the time leading up to the 2020-21 school year transitioning through the leadership change.
