Wed, 17 Oct 2018 12:00:29 CDT

The Panhandle school board approved a new contract for the district's superintendent during their monthly meeting on Monday evening.

After meeting in closed session for nearly two hours, the board approved a five-year contract for superintendent Aaron Hopper. The contract will run thru the 2022-23 school year and was approved by 5-0 vote, with board members Scott Cowdrey and Shane Gilpin absent. Hopper was first appointed as the superintendent in June 2014 after serving as a principal in the disctrict.

In other personnel matters, the board voted to accept the resignation of district bookkeeper and treasurer Tammi Mixen. The motion passed, 4-1, with Linda Brown as the lone vote of dissent. Dee Neisler was approved unanimously as the Junior High Scholastic Bowl Coach, and Kevin Young was approved as a volunteer high school basketball coach, pending the successful completion of all state and local high school requirements. The meeting adjourned at 9:44 p.m.

The next Panhandle School Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 19, at 7 p.m.
