Other topics addressed during Tuesday's School Board of Levy County meeting:
n The board held a closed meeting before Tuesday's public meeting to discuss the ongoing case between the district and former employee Linda Yon.
Yon was terminated from her position for allegedly using disparaging remarks to a student this past school year.
In May, Yon’s attorney made an offer to the school district for Yon to step down to an annual contract, serve the remainder of the school year suspended without pay and to come back for the 2010-2011 school year as a teacher on a “special assignment” with the school district. Hastings counteroffered that Yon would return as a non-teaching employee next year, which Yon’s attorney rejected.
Yon chose to pursue arbitration with the school district, which the board refused. The parties went to court, and Eighth Circuit Court Judge Stan Griffis ruled that both parties should attend arbirtration.
On Tuesday, the board unanimously approved a motion to appeal Griffiths' decision with the 1st District Court of Appeal.
