A summary of recent School Board action
Final placement of staff on unrequested leave of absence
At the June 9 meeting, the Board approved a proposal to place a number of certified staff on unrequested leave of absence for the 2020-21 school year. Since that meeting, there were no teachers who were included in the proposal that requested a hearing. Failure to request a hearing is deemed acquiescence to the proposed action; therefore 19 ECFE teachers and one social worker were placed on unrequested leave of absence.
Termination of probationary staff
Board chair Jonathan Weinhagen read a summary of Superintendent Chris Lennox’s appraisal for the 2019-20 school year. The summary stated, “Superintendent Lennox has led this district through an amazingly challenging year with results to be incredibly proud of. The tenacity and flexibility demonstrated throughout this COVID school closure is nothing short of remarkable leadership.” To read the entire report, click here.
