Highland School Board reschedules election
The Highland School Board held a special meeting April 7 to discuss a plan of action for the upcoming election which will determine whether or not the district retains the five mills which are approaching their sun setting period.
The meeting was called to order by Highland School Board President Justin Dunn. All board members were present, with two members attending remotely by way of phone.
Superintendent Don Sharp told the board he had received a letter of resignation from Kelly Geoffrion, a licensed teacher at Highland Middle School.
“It’s dated March 25 and that is the day we received it. She requested it be made effective immediately and so I recommend that. We would then pay her up to that date. I also have a series of e-mails between myself and Phil McClarty and then from myself on to the attorney Cody Keys. Since Phil’s email is worded differently, it’s not worded like a true resignation but he said he would not be appealing his termination. I forwarded it to our attorney..,” Sharp said.
Sharp said his recommendation was to accept the resignation of McClarty.
The next item of business was to discuss the date of the special election for the retaining five debt service millage.
“It’s currently scheduled for May 12 but I recommend we postpone that until the second Tuesday in July which will be July 14,” Sharp said.
The board voted unanimously to postpone the special election until the July 14 date.
