When Gateway first-grader Kamdyn Biddle’s father died in September, her mother wanted her to remain at Cleveland Steward Elementary School.
After all, Katy Biddle concluded, her daughter had made friends there and was meeting daily with a guidance counselor. …
But when Biddle attended a parent-teacher conference Jan. 26, the school’s secretary handed her a letter from Gateway Superintendent William Short stating her daughter’s last day of school would be Jan. 30.
Then on Tuesday, board member Chad Stubenbort said, the board during an executive session following the committee meeting chose to uphold Short’s decision.
