Members of the Lawrence school board met for all of 62 seconds Thursday to approve personnel moves before today’s arrival of a contractual deadline.

Board members, gathering for a special meeting at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive, voted unanimously to accept three resignations for the coming year:

  • Frank Harwood, the district’s chief operations officer, who is leaving to become superintendent of the Bellevue school district at the edge of Omaha, Neb. His resignation is effective June 30.
  • Felton Avery, who is resigning as a full-time assistant principal at Lawrence High School but will remain at the school as a part-time assistant principal for the coming year. His resignation is effective July 1.
  • A teacher at Kennedy School, whose resignation is effective May 25.

The district’s annual employee contracts become effective Friday.
