CI board accepts resignation
CROSBY -- The Crosby-Ironton School Board met in special session today to reconsider the resignation of an industrial technology teacher submitted last month.
The teacher, Duane Anderson, accepted a new position that required a May start date. The board had voted to refuse the resignation at their April 24 meeting after hearing that the district was unable to find a suitable substitute.
At today's meeting, the board accepted the resignation and thanked Anderson for the 20 years of excellent service to the district and its students. All classes have been covered by qualified teachers, the school district reported.
