Floyd was suspended and later dismissed last fall amid an investigation of alleged irregularities at the school, including improper changes to student grades.

However, in a four-day dismissal appeal hearing in April, no evidence was produced that Floyd changed any grades or pressured others to do so.

After the meeting, Board Attorney Cynthia Davis said the contents of the board’s letter notifying Floyd and the school district of its decision would not be made public by the school board.

Davis indicated persons interested in finding out the board’s decision should call the school district office on Wednesday.
