CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Community School District has named its new Superintendent and he's no stranger to Iowa.

Dr. Brad Buck, current Director of the Iowa Department of Education, will serve as the next Superintendent.

Before Governor Terry Branstad appointed him as director of the Department of Education, Buck was Superintendent of the Saydel Community School District. Buck also worked in the Ankeny, Waukee, Hudson, and North Mahaska districts.

The Cedar Rapids school board approved Buck as superintendent at a special meeting Wednesday.

Buck is a Cedar Rapids native, a graduate of Jefferson High School. He went to the University of Northern Iowa for his undergraduate degree and received his Master's and Ph.D. from Iowa State.
