School board honors teacher, staff of year

-A A +A
By Mike Capshaw, Staff Writer

The Levy County School Board announced the Teachers and Educational Staff Professionals of the Year for all 14 county schools at its Feb. 7 meeting where a large crowd of county educators packed the school board conference room.
Early Buddy Wyckoff of Williston High School was named Teacher of the Year. Williston Elementary School's Demeris "Dee" Arrington was selected as ESP of the year.
Chiefland teachers honored were Lisa Baxter from Chiefland Elementary School, Debra Weeks from Chiefland Middle and Adam Boyd from Chiefland High. ESPs were Janie Jacobs (CES), Susie Nichols (CMS) and Linda Jones (CHS).  
After the announcement, the board discussed plans to help the district abide by the Florida Class Size Reduction Amendment. The district faces $600,000 in fines for violating the standards but can reduce the fines by a minimum of 75 percent by creating and implementing a plan to reduce class sizes. Solutions include adding multiple teachers and teacher’s aides to a single class and promoting online classes. The resolution passed 5-0 without debate.
