Board member, coach, psychologist leaving Ki-Be

By the Herald staffJanuary 24, 2014 

BENTON CITY -- A Kiona-Benton City School Board member and the district's head football coach have announced plans to resign.

The school board Monday is expected to consider resignation letters from Wade Haun, a recently elected school board member, and Charles Hobbick, Ki-Be's head football coach, as part of the consent agenda.

Also on the consent agenda is the resignation of Roy Freeman, a school psychologist.

The Herald was unable to reach Haun, Hobbick or school board Chairman Tim Cook on Friday evening.

Kiona-Benton City School District's superintendent Rom Castilleja resigned during a closed-door school board session earlier this week. He is on sabbatical leave until June 30 and will have no further duties, but will continue to be paid.

Castilleja's resignation came just a week after state education officials said the district must pay back almost $169,000 for misreporting special education student enrollment figures.

Monday's board meeting is at 7 p.m. at Kiona-Benton City High School.
