E. Idaho Teacher Get to Keep Job after Complaint
BLACKFOOT, Idaho (AP) — A popular southeastern Idaho science teacher will keep her job but is being placed on probation.
The Snake River School District Board of Trustees on Monday determined that Elaine Asmus didn’t violate harassment and bullying policies. But the board also determined she did violate the Idaho Code of Professional Ethics for Professional Educators.
Earlier this month the school board held two packed hearings that added up to about 15 hours concerning renewing Asmus’ contract. The case is highly unusual because a formal complaint was filed against Asmus by another teacher who is also the wife of the superintendent of the eastern Idaho school district. Asmus says she’s happy and thankful to remain in the school district.
