With the re-assignment of Mrs. Kali Carroll, we have an open Special Education position.  Out of 55 applications, Mr. Meyer and Mr. Jones interviewed 4 people.  It was a difficult decision with the great applicants.  Mr. Meyer and Mr. Jones recommended Ms. Gina Huegen for the Special Education position.  Gina is a graduate of Central and currently teaches in Triad.  A motion to employ Ms. Gina Huegen as the Special Education teacher pending all necessary requirements are met was made by Rick Taphorn, second by Tina Winkeler.  Roll call vote:  Aye – Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Rick Taphorn, Tim Richter, Mike Nettemeier, Tina Winkeler.  Dave Wellen – Abstain  Nay – None
