The Tonganoxie USD 464 School Board is expected to make a decision on whether to renew a teacher's contract and also continue with its superintendent search.

Monday's special meeting, along with subsequent ones scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday and Friday if needed, will be at 6 p.m. in the Tonganoxie Middle School library. Those meetings have been scheduled to interview superintendent finalists to replace current Superintendent Lyn Rantz, who is resigning to take an administrative position at Topeka Collegiate. Her stint as USD 464 superintendent concludes June 30.

Board meetings normally have taken place at the Tonganoxie Elementary School library, but meetings this week are taking place at TMS, which is next door to TES on Washington Street.

The resolution to not renew a teacher contract first appeared on last Monday's agenda.

The board tabled the decision until tonight's meeting by a 5-2 vote, with Kris Grinter and Michelle McGhee voting against tabling the resolution. The district has not released the teacher whose non-renewal is being considered in its board meeting information.
