Chadron School Board Rolls Over Superintendent’s Contract


     The Chadron school board Monday night rolled over the contract of Superintendent Ginger Meyer for another 2 years.

      Meyer, who came to Chadron in 2020, had received another sparkling annual evaluation earlier this year.

     Although all the contract language rolls over, School Board President Boone Huffman says Meyer’s salary isn’t settled yet..

The school board also accepted 5 resignations. Todd Hastings is retiring after 33 years as a teacher, the last 31 in Chadron, kindergarten teacher Lauren Collins is moving to Arizona to be closer to family and for a “new and exciting position,” and Troy Gregory says he’s on a new path in his professional career.

      Art teacher Travis Hency, himself a product of the Chadron Public Schools, says his personal circumstances are making it difficult for him to do his duties the way he knows is best, and middle school counselor Rebecca Dubs is going into private practice.

      The board accepted all 5 resignations with “deep regret” as well as deep-felt thanks for their dedicated service. Huffman says all 5 have consistently gone above and beyond what was expected of them.

The board also approved a contract with MiaKayla Koerber to teach ag. Koerber was one of the first students to enroll in ag classes when Chadron High brought them back about a decade ago and she’s currently the agriculture teacher in Crawford.
