It took three separate votes, but the Daniel Boone School Board was able to pass the final version of its 2013-14 budget that reinstates the elementary basic skills program.
Moments after the budget was passed, long-term board member Kevin F. McCullough announced his resignation.
“Now that the budget has passed, speaking for personal reasons, I hereby resign from my position on the board, effective immediately,” he said. “Thank you and good night.”
McCullough then stood up, packed his bag, took a deep sigh and walked out of the meeting without further comment. He was in his 14th year as a board member, the longest of any current members.
