WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee School Board won’t appeal a court order to rehire former teacher and coach Ed Knaggs, fired after a student drowned during his class in 2011.
“It was a difficult decision,” said Laura Jaecks, school board president, following a long executive session with attorneys for the district Wednesday evening. “We’ve taken steps to never let this happen again. But it’s time to let the healing begin. It’s time to move on.”
