NEWPORT — At the end of last school year, Sam Case Primary Principal Ryan Relken was one of multiple administrators who announced his resignation from the Lincoln County School District, so that he could move closer to family in Michigan.
It turns out that Relken was just one of 30 Lincoln County educators who resigned – for similar and other reasons, such as heading to a bigger district and facing challenges in a tough local economy.
Now, LCSD is in the process of hiring 63 teaching positions to be filled by 57 newly hired educators, and the permanent hiring of six who’ve had temporary contracts.
In addition to the 30 who have resigned, there have been 8.5 full-time equivalent retirements, three leaves of absences and 15.5 newly added teaching positions, according to Human Resources Director Chelsi Sholty.
