ISD 166 probationary teachers released from contracts
Three probationary teachers were released from their
contracts with School District ISD 166 at a special meeting on May 30
at the Jane Mianowski Conference Room.
The ISD 166 School Board acted on the probationary contracts of Sherry
Nanoff, a math intervention instructor; Heather Kemp, a fourth grade
instructor; and Eric Frost, an early childhood special education
Superintendent Beth Schwarz said that Frost didn’t have the
appropriate licensure to retain his position and that Kemp and Nanoff
were being released because of the financial condition of the school
district and decrease in enrollment.
However, said Schwarz, due to several teachers retiring at the end of
this year, teaching positions will open and be posted internally so
that current staff can have first chance at those jobs. That will
leave some openings later, and, said Schwarz, “They may [Kemp,
Nanoff, Frost] be hired for those openings, but as of now we have to
terminate their contracts.”
A motion was passed on the non-renewal of the contracts.
