It only took seven days before the Yorktown Independent School District Board of Directors moved from “business as usual” with Carl Krug residing as YISD superintendent to accepting his resignation.
The board of trustees had a special called meeting on Monday, Dec. 28 to consider/discuss the possible resignation of Carl Krug. After just over an hour of closed session with legal consultation of school attorney Shellie Krow, the board accepted the resignation of Krug effective Jan. 31, 2016 and approved the resignation agreement. The vote was unanimous, 7-0. The details of the resignation agreement has not been disclosed.
The board took action on hiring interim superintendent Linda Bettin effective Jan. 4, 2016. Bettin filled in as interim superintendent (June 15) after Alan Umholtz resigned his position as superintendent on May 18 and stayed until Krug took his position as superintendent on Oct. 1.
