On July 1, Derek Bub became superintendent of the West Ada School District — just in time for the delta variant surge.
His first two months on the job have been consumed by the debate over school pandemic protocols. Last week, Bub reinstated a mask mandate for students and staff.
On this week’s Kevin Richert Podcast, Bub talks about the decisionmaking process, and non-COVID issues facing the state’s largest school district.
