School board set to approve Labyer’s contract

DUNCAN — Duncan Superintendent Sherry Labyer’s contract is up for approval of the Duncan Board of Education.

During tonight’s regular meeting, the board will be tasked with approving Labyer’s contract, a task the board members are given annually. During the December board meeting, members entered into executive session to discuss Labyer’s contributions to the school district.

Labyer became superintendent in 2005, after being voted in by Duncan residents. Since then, board members have unanimously approved her contract each year.

Under Labyer’s supervision, the school district passed a bond issue in 2012, to renovate the Duncan High School, initiated several pilot programs and promoted several teachers into principal/administrative positions. Among the pilot programs started in Duncan is Career Pathways, which works to make the connection between education and the workforce.

Two actions involving Labyer are scheduled on the board agenda. First, the board will choose whether to rehire Labyer. Second, the board will have to take action regarding her contract.

Labyer is married to Arvest Bank President Hal Labyer and has one son, Matt.

In addition to items pertaining to Labyer, the board may approve the retirement of John Millirons, Plato Elementary principal. The retirement would be effective June 30. Millirons has 34 years of service with the school district.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
