FOLLOW-UP: Ongoing Housing Drama in Strong-Huttig
The saga between an art teacher and a school district over a school-owned rental property continues with a letter from the superintendent
The Strong-Huttig School Board met Monday night for its regular monthly meeting.
Yes, the board addressed the current housing situation about the McCue family.
South Arkansas Reckoning obtained this letter Tuesday addressed to Brandye Snead McCue, a first-year art teacher in the Strong-Huttig School District, from Superintendent Amy Sanchez.
The McCues, according to the letter, can sign a release that includes a hold harmless for both parties. The school will refund McCue's $700.
If McCue does not sign the document, she will not receive her $700. The lease will be terminated and possible legal action.
McCue said that she and her family have not found a new place to live. She also said she did not know if she would be able to remain in the school district because of the housing situation.
Strong-Huttig School Board President Cindy Smith told South Arkansas Reckoning the situation was unfortunate, but the house wasn't going to work. Smith said McCue was a "dynamic" teacher and hoped she would stay.
After the school board meeting Monday night, McCue drove to El Dorado to display her students' art at the Union County Fair.
