Community Supports Contract Renewal for Idaho Teacher
BLACKFOOT, Idaho (AP) — The Snake River School District Board of Trustees will resume a due process hearing Monday of a longtime biology teacher. The trustees listened to about eight hours of testimony Friday before deciding to continue the hearing on whether to renew the teaching contract of Elaine Asmus for next school year. More than 200 people attended the hearing. The case is highly unusual because a formal complaint was filed against Asmus by another teacher who also is the wife of the superintendent of the eastern Idaho school district.
