Mick v Hancock County Board of Education (Docket No. 2022 0038-HanED) made an appearance on the agenda of the Board’s regular meeting Monday. Listed under unfinished business for an “update, discussion and possible action”, the Board instead voted to go into executive session for the update and discussion. Oak Glen Principal Alysa Mick who filed the grievance was present at the meeting as was her attorney, Alex Risovich. A student expulsion was also discussed during that executive session.
The Board emerged after a lengthy session, and took no action. The Board has appealed the Administrative Law Judge’s ruling to rebid the Human Resource Director position currently held by Sarah Parsons. Board members Danny Kaser, Toni Hinerman and Michelle Chappell’s terms are set to expire June 30 when Ed Fields, Gerard Spencer and Jim Horstman will take office. Regular Board meetings are slated for June 13 and June 27. The Board must conduct an evaluation of Superintendent Dawn Petrovich along with a self-evaluation prior to July and will do so at a special meeting on June 14. Indications are they will discuss the grievance at that time.
The Board congratulated winners of the Golden Horseshoe candidates from Hancock County: Ella Paras, Oak Glen Middle; Michah Hvizdak, Weir Middle; Cayden Braswell, Weir Middle; and Ethaniel Baker, St. Joseph the Worker.
