CROSBY - After meeting in a closed session Monday, the Crosby-Ironton School Board passed a resolution to have its attorney move forward with an appeal regarding a former Crosby-Ironton Spanish teacher.
The board action came after the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the reinstatement of the teacher, who was terminated after participating in the 2005 teachers' strike.
The court affirmed that the C-I School District breached its non-reprisal agreement when it refused to rehire Maureen Morrow, according to Education Minnesota, the state teachers' union.
The board resolution states that the school district's attorney will only petition to move forward with the appeal as long as it's in the district's best interest and "unless or until there is a reasonable resolution to the matter."
C-I Superintendent Jamie Skjeveland said after the closed meeting that he could not comment on the board action.
The vote for the resolution passed 4-0 with board members Mike Domin, Bob Sandin, Scott Kile and Maurice Slepica in favor of it.
