BOONE, Iowa—The resignation of Amanda Kacal as the Boone High School Agriculture Teacher created quite a stir among district patrons. Many showed up for the School Board meeting to protest the elimination of the Agriculture Program and FFA. Superintendent Brad Manard said on Tuned In this week that there has never been any discussion about eliminating the Ag Program or FFA. He said it just so happened the position is vacant at the time the Board is looking for ways to adopt additional budget reductions. Manard said the district is advertising for an instructor and hope to match up someone to the needs of the district.
