The Board of Education accepted their resignations at the last meeting.  They have already started accepting applications for the positions.

“Turnover is unfortunate, but it’s kind of a necessary evil when you have 140 staff members in a rural town.  I’ll tell you that the most important variable in education is getting the right person in front of a classroom or the right person to run a building,” said MacLaughlin.

This is not an unusually high turnover rate.  The district hired 15 new staff members last year.
