@hollyotterbein SDP is working to put @ least 1 sec back in schools- if sec resigned/retired it would simply not be the same secretary

Superintendent William Hite, speaking at a special Friday morning School Reform Commission meeting, said the District was working to bring back at least one secretary at each school. Whether this would apply to schools where secretaries had retired or resigned initially created some confusion. The District later clarified on Twitter that in the case of retirement or resignation those schools would then get a new secretary.
