Gleason, who’s been in education for 43 years according to his resignation letter, said the resignation will be effective at the end of the school year. McCook business manager Rick Haney submitted his resignation last month in December, also effective at the of this school year.

Another resignation up for approval Monday night comes from seventh-grade math teacher Zach Wieser, who’s been with the school district for three years.

The board will also be asked to approve the $24,000 donation from the Bison Booster Club, with the funds going toward the weight room and to strike a redundant board policy.

The policy, concerning student transportation for extracurricular activities, is already addressed in another policy.

Also at Monday night’s meeting, Superintendent Grant Norgaard will explain the DRAFT evaluation tool used to evaluate teachers.

The meeting will begin with the election of officers. Current officers are Tom Bredvick, president, Teresa Thomas, vice president and Loretta Hauxwell, secretary. After nominations and voting, the board will be asked to appoint the district business manager as treasurer/recording secretary. Committee appointments will also be made.

After the regular meeting, the board will meet in closed session for the superintendent’s evaluation.
