The Panhandle Board of Education met on Wednesday, June 5, for a special meeting, with the main purpose to discuss personnel matters.
Approximately two hours of the two hour and 15 minute meeting was held in closed session to discuss appointment, employment and/or dismissal of employees, collective bargaining matters and student matters. When the board re-entered into open session at 10:12, they accepted two resignations, two volunteer assignments and two new employments.
The resignations came from Shawn Andrews as junior high baseball assistant coach and Kate Wagahoff as the district's head cook.
The volunteer approvals were for high school boys basketball, where Josh Johnson will return to Coach Matt Millburg's staff, and for the junior high and high school volleyball program, where Cory Damm will assist Coach Kimberly Denney.
Before adjourning at 10:15 p.m., the board approved Keasha Wagahoff as cafeteria cook and clerk and Robert Card as Lincolnwood Spanish teacher. Card had previously taught in the Northwestern School District in Palmyra.
The only other item to be approved by the board was the updated surplus list, which passed before the start of closed session.
The board will meet again on Monday, June 24, for their regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Lincolnwood High School library.
