By Bill Tiedje
Ridgway School Board voted 4 to 1 not to renew secondary principal Jim Bob Hobbs' contract at a regular meeting on Monday.
"After careful consideration and often difficult discussions amongst ourselves and with community stakeholders, we’ve determined that a change in leadership in the position of secondary school principal is necessary," wrote Chair Roger Sagal, Heather Yeowell, Greg Lawler and Steve Larivee, in a written statement issued Tuesday.
Hobbs' contract will expire on July 31. This is his fifth year as principal of Ridgway secondary school.
