USD 409 Board of Education members and lead district officials convened for a special session Wednesday morning to adopt the final action regarding the non-renewal of the Tenured Teacher’s Contract of Monica Beien after due process.
Board members had initially given notice of their intent not to renew her contract for the 2022-23 schoolyear on April 12 pursuant to Resolution No. 22-02. Beien had initially submitted a request for an administrative hearing for due process. On July 12, the designated hearing officer for USD 409 received notification from Monica Beien’s attorney, on her behalf, via electronic mail of her request to withdraw from the hearing and her understanding that the Board may proceed to non-renew her contract for the 2022-23 school year.
