Clearwater school board accepts two resignations


March 12, 2020

Resignation letters from two Clearwater elementary teachers were read during the Clearwater Public School Board of Education March 3 meeting.

Lila Wondercheck, fourth grade teacher, and Jamie Turpin, fifth grade instructor, submitted their resignations, effective at the end of the current school year.

Wondercheck, a Newman Grove native, has accepted a position at Boone Central Public Schools in Albion.

In her letter, Wondercheck wrote, “I am excited to move closer to my family and for this new adventure that I will be on.”

Turpin will teach in the O’Neill Public School system next year.

She wrote, “I have really enjoyed watching my students grow educationally and develop lifelong skills. They have all touched my life in some way and have taught me a lot as a teacher.”

Turpin served as the Summerland cross country coach during its inaugural season.

Duane Kester made the motion to accept the resignations. Brian King seconded the motion, which was approved on a 6-0 vote.

Board members approved hiring Zach King for seasonal mowing at the same price as last year. King will receive $80 per mowing session.

In other business, board members

• reviewed the 2020-2021 school calendar, with a proposed first day for students on Aug. 13;

• discussed the consolidation process; and

• talked about the future use of the school building and grounds. No decisions have been made at this time.

The next meeting for the board will be April 6, at 7 p.m.
