Vieyra will fill the position vacated by Kim Cooper, who is retiring, and oversee the district's special education (SPED) programs.

She was recommended by both interim Superintendent Tami Eshleman and incoming Superintendent Marty Bassett.

Vieyra stepped forward, Eshleman told the board. She begins her new duties on July 1, earning $115,000 a year plus benefits.

“We’re looking forward to working with her,” Eshleman said.

Vieyra is currently the principal of Cody Elementary. Eshleman did not indicate how that position will be filled.

Vieyra graduated from Lexington High School and attended Kearney State College where she received a degree in speech pathology. She began her career with ESU #16 and joined North Platte Public Schools in 1999 as a speech pathologist. In 2008, she became the principal of Hall elementary school and administrator of the Early Childhood program.

She holds a masters degree in education administration from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

District administrators, building administrators, special education staff and teachers interviewed applicants.

“She will be a strong advocate for all students in the North Platte Public School system,” Eshleman said. “She is a strong team player and will be a great asset to our district leadership team.”


Otherwise

In a light agenda, the board also updated a policy prohibiting top administrators from employing relatives, domestic partners and significant others.

The board also accepted the resignation of Tanya Windham, and hired these teachers:

• Autumn Alberts, Lanelle Janicek and Courtney Simants at McDonald Elementary School.

• Monica Miller-Carter at Hall School.

• Michelle Mroczek at the Lake School.

• Danielle Tuepker and Johnna Arensdorf at Jefferson Elementary.

• Kevin Mielock at Madison Middle School.
