More than 50 people showed up to create decorated planks of wood to hang from rope. The event served as a fund-raiser for miscellaneous PTO projects.

Morenci school board 5.16

Posted in 2007 May

No Morenci substitute teachers will be spared in the district’s recent decision to join a consortium of county schools in making private their employment.
Board members voted in March to join other county districts in signing a contract with Professional Education Strategies Group (PESG) to move substitute teachers into the private sector.
A condition of the agreement allowed districts to exclude certain teachers from the measure, but the Morenci Board of Education voted 3-1 Monday against any exceptions.

The board unanimously approved a pair of new retirement incentive packages—one to be offered to teachers and one to administrators. Staff members eligible for the packages will be notified soon, said Griffith.
