TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - After more than four decades, the Kansas Department of Education is moving.

The state board held its final meeting Tuesday in the current education building at 10th and Quincy.

The department is re-locating to the Landon State Office Building.

Dr. Diane DeBacker. the Kansas Commissioner of Education, says they outgrew the "Scott" building several years ago, and will be in the Landon building in about three weeks...

"We also have the advantage of being in a building with other state agencies, so we'll feel like we're part of the system a little bit more," said DeBacker. "We're looking forward to being in Landon, having "building mates", kind of the roommates with us and it's going to be a great working environment for us."

The two longest tenured employees, Lue Ann Snider and Dale Dennis, shared a history of the building and some of their memories during the meeting.
