The Ava R-I School Board held a closed session meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 29. The special session, which was announced Monday, Sept. 28, was to address a personnel issue.
According to the superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lawler, a personnel issue was discussed by the board, but a course of action by vote was not taken, as necessary documentation was not yet available.
Prior to the meeting this week, however, Lawler had placed the teacher in question on administrative leave.
The board has scheduled another closed session for Monday, Oct. 5, to examine additional facts on the personnel issue.
