Neligh-Oakdale School

After a special meeting and one-hour executive session Monday night, it is still unclear who will lead the Neligh-Oakdale School District next month.

The board voted 6-0 to create a director of education position on a motion by Cory Furstenau and second by Kenny Reinke after exiting executive session.

Following that decision, board members unanimously approved designating responsibilities for the purposes of hiring the positions of a director of education and an interim superintendent.

However, no one was hired for the positions on Monday.

The positions were created to replace outgoing Supt. Scott Gregory who resigned last month to accept a position at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kan. Gregory's resignation takes effect Aug. 5.

President Ryan Koinzan said he did some research after last week's meeting to determine what the requirements are for a superintendent certification, and since that time,  a committee has reviewed "what their options are."
