Mike Sanne, principal at the Summerland - Clearwater site, will leave the district after 15 years of service. He has accepted the superintendent position at Boyd County Public Schools.

One Summerland administrator and six educators submitted letters of resignation that were read during Monday's school board meeting, in Ewing.

Mike Sanne, who has served as principal at Clearwater for 15 years, has accepted a position as superintendent of schools at Boyd County Schools.

In his resignation letter, Sanne, a Clearwater native, wrote, "Having my kids attend school where I attended school was a wonderful blessing."

He credited the Clearwater community for its support.

"To my staff, you are much more than my co-workers, you are my friends and my family. You will be greatly missed," Sanne wrote.

Laurel Miller, science instructor, in Clearwater, tendered her resignation.

She wished the district the "best of luck in the future."

Ewing site industrial technology instructor, Bill Tabbert, submitted his resignation.

In his resignation letter, Tabbert thanked Superintendent Dale Martin and Principal Greg Appleby for their support.

"They are two of the finest administrators with whom I have had the pleasure of working," Tabbert wrote.

Ewing site third-grade instructor, Rachael Barlow, will open a business in the area.

She wrote, "It is something that has been on my heart to do for a long time ... and one of those things that I will regret if I don't try."

Scott Kraus, K-12 physical education and health instructor at Clearwater, will leave the district.

Kraus thanked the district for the opportunity to work with Sanne and Clearwater students this year.

Two educators applied for early retirement.

Orchard site first-grade teacher Cheryl Schwager said during her career at the school, she has "grown and flourished."

"I will take with me many fond memories of students I have taught and the wonderful teachers, administrators and staff with whom I served."

Jana Wilhelm, Orchard site sixth-grade teacher, will take early retirement.

She plans to move to her hometown, St. Francis, Kansas, and will teach junior high science at an area school.

"We had purchased my parents' home with plans to retire there, but opportunities have allowed us to move there sooner," she wrote.
