Hulbert Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Marilyn Dewoody announced her resignation during a regular HPS Board of Education meeting Monday.

"I resigned, because I'm going Tenkiller [Public Schools]," said Dewoody. "Randy Roundtree was the superintendent there for like 25 years and then he retired. Then Bryan Hix took over after him. I've known both of them since the '80s, and they're good, strong leaders. So I knew the school would be in great shape, because they've done such a great job. So I'm kind of excited about it."

Dewoody will remain on as the HPS superintendent until June 30, when the school's fiscal year ends.

In other business, the board voted to reorganize the board of education, since new member Rachel Dallis was recently elected. Steve Carey will serve as the president of the board, Dallis will be vice president, and Marty Wynn is the clerk.

The board approved a resolution for the Schools and Libraries Universal Support program. Commonly known as E-Rata, the program helps schools and libraries to obtain broadband. Dewoody it's a resolution passed every year to receive "federal money you get for technology."

The board voted to allow David Bowman to travel out of state to return animals used for FFA, and to travel to Iowa, Missouri, Ohio and Illinois to find animals for next year.

The board voted for the HPS 2019-2020 school year to include 1080 hours of instruction, instead of 180 days.
