Gov. Names New Ed. Director

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad has named the superintendent of a small Polk County school district as director of the Iowa Department of Education.
   Branstad announced Tuesday that he'd appointed 44-year-old Brad Buck to head the department.
   He will replace Jason Glass, who left the position in June to take a job with a Colorado school district.
   Buck has worked as superintendent of the 1,300-student Saydel school district since July 2011. He previously was an administrator in the Waukee, Hudson and North Mahaska school districts.
   He began his education career in 1992 as a middle school science teacher in Ankeny.
   Branstad says Buck has the skills to implement education reforms approved by the 2013 Legislature, including a teacher leadership program that will be phased in over several years.
