King to replace Feather as Fleming PE teacher


The Frenchman Board of Education accepted three resignations while approving the consent agenda in a short, hour-long meeting at the end of May. Board members met at the conclusion of the eighth grade continuation held earlier in the evening.

The local Board of Education in Fleming accepted resignations from physical education teacher Deron Feather, route bus driver Ashley Steward and special education teacher Cheri Bornhoft.

Later in the meeting, the Board voted to hire Fleming alumni Jaxon King as the PE teacher for the 2022-23 school year. According to Superintendent Steve McCracken, King recently graduated with a degree in education and more recently completed his student teaching in Lone Star. In addition to teaching, King serves as the high school baseball coach and also assists with coaching the high school football team. In the past, he has worked as a substitute teacher in Fleming as well.

Fleming Schools is currently taking applications for a special education teacher and special education para-professional. The District is also seeking applicants for an assistant boys’ basketball coach, junior high volleyball coach and junior high track coach.

At the start of the meeting, second grade teacher Krystal Stone gave her annual report to members of the Board of Education. Stone just completed her 20th year teaching at Fleming Schools. She told the Board that 100 percent of her class reached their growth goals in more than one subject area, according to recent test scores.

In a short list of action items, the Board approved the list of extra duty assignments for the 2022-23 school year and approved a non-probationary teacher contract for Brittany Pierce. McCracken said there were not significant changes to the extra duty assignment other than rotating class sponsors up a grade.

“We will update as needed when we hire new coaches,” he added.

In other business the Board:

• Approved overnight travel for State Track and the State FFA convention;

• Approved an assignment agreement signature page with NE BOCES. The signature page is an agreement with BOCES to help manage Federal title dollars;

• Approved dues for the Colorado Association of School Boards for next year;

• Approved an invoice with Yearout for $7,240 for HVAC consulting fees.
