The Neligh-Oakdale Board of Education accepted the resignations of two teachers and approved the hiring of four new faculty members Monday night.
Justin Kruse (secondary language arts) and Kara Dusatko (sixth grade) submitted resignations. Brad Higgins made a motion to accept the resignations with regrets, with Krista Schindler seconding. The motion passed 6-0.
Three non-certified staff also resigned, though no approval by the board was necessary. Those staff were Lois Bright, Jeanne Peterson and Merri Strong.
New hires for the 2015-16 school year were approved on a motion by Higgins and second by Ryan Koinzan. The motion passed 6-0.
New teachers will be Jamie Schrader (second grade), Becky Kerkman (elementary guidance), Rebecca Hepner (secondary language arts) and Joyce Wemhoff (fourth grade).
Principal George Loofe said the sixth-grade teaching position will be reassigned at a later day.
