The Holgate School Board will begin the search for a new boys basketball coach, after the resignation of Tyler Closson after one year at the helm. Holgate is expected to post the position internally, seeking candidates.
The Holgate Board tackled other personnel issues at the Monday meeting, accepting retirement-resignations from Tom Thomas, and from Joely Schroeder, teacher Sara Downey, along with varsity cheerleader advisor Amy Moening .
Contracts were approved for a number of teachers in the Holgate district for the coming year, including continuing contracts for Chad Dale, Kari DeLano, Benjamin Schwab, and Christine Yenser. A three-year contract was also approved for Joshua Riedy.
Continuing contracts were awarded to non-teaching staff members at Holgate Schools, including Amanda Kelly, Diane Meyer, and Natalie Taylor.
The Holgate senior class of 39 students was approved for graduation; and 40 potential students have filed for the post-secondary enrollment option. That is for students planning to attend college classes, along with their high school schedules.
