Bevan resigns from USD 230
Board of Education members withdrew their intent not to renew the contract of Pam Bevan, Spring Hill Intermediate School Principal, on Monday night. Instead, they accepted her resignation.
Bevan informed the board she has accepted a job in Hutchinson, Kan. Next school year, she will be the principal at Lincoln Elementary School in USD No. 308.
“It is unfortunate that I have been placed in a situation in which I must resign my position as principal at Spring Hill Intermediate School in order to avoid a non-renewal on my record,” Bevan wrote in a letter to board members. “I have enjoyed my six years in Spring Hill and truly feel that I have always done what is in the best interest of the children.”
