Also on Wednesday, school board members:
n Voted 4-2 to approve a residency waiver for Meade Park Principal Mendy Spesard who is moving to a farm operation in Ridge Farm, which is about 2 miles farther than the current requirement that administrators live within 10 miles of District 118. Young and Bragorgos, who opposed the waiver, said they would like to change the residency requirement so that administrators live in the district.
“What’s so bad about living in Danville?” Bragorgos said. “If you want to take a significant job, like administrator or principal, then you should live in the district. Otherwise, you can be a teacher.”
n Recognized three faculty members during the Spotlight on Staff: Cannon Elementary School fifth-grade teacher Adrian Koerner, South View Middle School science teacher Robert Cundiff and DHS math coach Brian Ritz.
