Results of Marshall school board meeting to be announced later today
Marshall residents eager to find out how the Board of Education will rule in the case of three elementary teachers charged with violating standardized testing security protocols will not have to wait much longer.
Board President Anita Wright said Monday morning, July 28, that the board plans to release its findings sometime Monday afternoon.
The board was expected to come to a decision sometime this week after receiving transcripts of the public held during two nights, July 8-9, designed to allow boths sides to present their cases.
District policy gives the board seven days after receiving transcripts to render a decision. The board held a special closed meeting Friday, July 25, to discuss personnel matters.
The three teachers -- Crystal McGraw, Dawn Plummer and Nathan Reeder -- were accused in May of having given students inappropriate help preparing for the Missouri Assessment Program test, and McGraw and Plummer were accused of having unauthorized copies of the MAP test.
Former Interim Superintendent Donn Quick offered the teachers a chance to resign rather than having their contracts terminated.
All three teachers declined to resign and denied any wrong-doing during the hearing.
