Resignations from instrumental music teacher Richard Munson and secretary Kaye Dean were accepted by the Chase County Schools board of education Tuesday.
In addition, the board hired a special education aide and part-time reading teacher.
Munson, who has taught grade 5-12 instrumental music at CCS since the start of the 2003-04 school year, resigned effective Jan. 15.
The school board met about seven minutes in closed session at their Tuesday meeting, before approving a resolution 9-0 that accepts Munson’s resignation, and a severance and release agreement between him and the district.
Supt. Matt Fisher said there is a seven-day period subsequent to Tuesday’s vote during which Munson can withdraw the agreement.
No other information was provided, nor details of the severance agreement. Supt. Fisher said school attorneys have reviewed all of the paperwork.
Also resigning, effective Jan. 29, was school secretary Kaye Dean.
A front office school secretary the past four years, Dean has accepted another position in the community.
In other action, the board hired Carrie Orvis as a full-time one-to-one special education aide.
Jackie (Burke) Paisley was hired as a part-time elementary reading teacher.
The board also voted in support of Kelsey Cupp’s application for a local substitute teaching certificate from the state.
The balance of Tuesday’s school board meeting will be reported next week.
