Dr. Lucas McKinnis Begins Tenure as La Plata Superintendent

The second semester in the La Plata School District brought with it a new superintendent. Dr. Lucas McKinnis took over the position from interim superintendent Rick Roberts. McKinnis has worked for several different school districts during his career.

Last month’s fire at the elementary school sped-up the hiring process.

McKinnis is a graduate of Twin Rivers High School. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Mizzou, a Master’s Degree in Education from Southeast Missouri State and a Doctorate Degree in Education Leadership from Saint Louis University.
