Beecher City school board members took action on a number of personnel needs Monday.

The Board accepted the resignation of Tom Wendling as Driver's Ed and Shop teacher.  Beecher City Superintendent Scott Cameron said Wendling's duties will be absorbed by existing staff with the Shop courses handled through the Ag program.

The resignation of James Walker as Spanish instructor was also accepted, but a replacement has not been found.  Cameron said District officials are considering teaming up with the Dieterich district and former Regional School Superintendent Mark Drone to obtain Spanish instruction through an online course.

Also Monday, the Beecher City board accepted the resignation of Amy Doty as a bus driver, approved Mitch White as a volunteer junior high baseball coach, named Lynelle Wachtel as high school Scholar Bowl coach, and approved Kelsey Myers as volunteer junior high volleyball and softball coach.

Board members also hired Maranda Martin as a part-time Speech teacher, and Vanessa Doedtman and Sherry Wright as school aides.

The teachers need to be in place this week; the Beecher City school year begins with Teachers Institute on Thursday and the first day of student attendance this Friday.
