Purdy renews teachers' contracts
Tenured teachers list grows to 33, with 3 additions
The Purdy Board of Education made several major personnel moves recently, rehiring certified teachers and moving three faculty members to tenured positions.
Prior to taking action, the board accepted resignations from high school math teacher Molly Strickland and agriculture teachers Amanda Neely and Payden Emmett.
Moved to tenure were elementary music teacher Samantha Burt, high school communication arts teacher Kayla Branstetter and high school physical education teacher and coach Eli Ernst. They join 30 other faculty members already on tenure receiving contracts for the coming school year.
The 21 remaining probationary teachers received contracts for the coming year.
