The USD 364 Board of Education held a special board meeting Wednesday night to officially accept Superintendent Khris Thexton’s resignation. Also accepted was the resignation of 2nd grade teacher Shawnae Rempe. In their regular board meeting held last Wednesday, the board entered into a three year purchase and lease agreement for 230 laptops just over $68,600, and purchased 25 staff desktops/monitors for $18,900. Also, it was noted that, after much discussion over the tennis courts, that the school can not spend any district money on non district property, that according to KSDE School Finance. However, Mr. Thexton is planning to meet with Mr. Frye from the city council to see if a rental agreement could be worked out with the city.
In other action, Randy Freeman was appointed as a Driver’s Education instructor for 3 months and Cole Fredrickson for 1 month. Also last Wednesday, the board accepted several resignations, including Linda Knott as Junior High Science Instructor and Betty Melcher as secretary at the Elementary School, both of whom are retiring at the end of this school year.
