Ironton Superintendent Dean Nance may resign

At a special Ironton Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Ironton Schools superintendent Dean Nance and the Ironton School Board came to a “conceptual” agreement” that Nance might step down from his position.

The meeting began at 5:30 p.m. at the Ironton City Schools office and the board went into executive session after the Pledge of Allegiance and the reading of the purpose of the meeting.

Around 7:45 p.m., they came out of executive session and Nance gave a written statement.

“Conceptually, the board and I have reached an agreement, subject to my attorney’s approval,” Nance read. “If all the terms and conditions are agreed upon and included in the contract, I will be submitting my resignation to the board before the next board meeting.”

Nance’s contract with the school system expires on July 31. Nance was hired as superintendent in April 2003 after being the Ironton High School principal for two years.

The board then made a motion for the next meeting to be held at Ironton High School next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
