The Kane School Board has approved several personnel appointments for the coming school year that begins Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Appointments approved at a meeting Thursday include:
*Nicholas Byron, a Chicago native who now lives in Ludlow, has been named as a new vocational-agricultural teacher. He replaces Brian Lawson, who resigned two years ago. Roger Gausman served as a long-term substitute for the position last year.
Byron and his wifeâ€”the former Jacqueline Depto of Ludlowâ€”have a 3-month-old son, Royce. The new teacher is not directly related to Claire Ann Depto, a Ludlow resident who is president of the school board.
