Central Valley Public School

The Central Valley School Board wants public input on whether the rural Buxton school should continue its tech ed classes or shift gears and hire an industrial arts or vo-ag teacher.

The board held a special meeting Tuesday night over Zoom to approve the resignation of tech ed teacher Tracy Foss, who said she wouldn’t be signing her 2021-22 contract to pursue a job elsewhere.

The resignation created short- and long-term concerns that school administrators needed to discuss with a month remaining before the start of fall classes, said Superintendent Jeremy Brandt.

It’s unlikely the district would be able to hire a tech teacher so close to the start of school, Brandt said.
