ROCK SPRINGS — Following an executive session that lasted nearly three hours last night, the Sweetwater County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees voted to extend Superintendent Kelly McGovern’s contract through the 2023-2024 school year.
The board voted 5-1 to retain McGovern’s contract with John Bettolo casting the lone dissenting vote. Trustee George Reedy was not present at the board meeting last night.
McGovern has served as the district’s Superintendent for seven years, taking the position in 2014. She has been employed by the district as a teacher and administrator for a combined 30 years.
The board broke into executive session to discuss “legal and personnel matters,” according to chairwoman Carol Jelaco. Following a motion to vote on McGovern’s contract, there was no further discussion and a roll call vote was taken in favor of extending her services for three more years.
