School board votes against firing Page teacher

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

The school board in Page has voted against firing a teacher who did not immediately report two students missing from her classroom.

Melanie Howard still could face disciplinary action.

Page Unified School District Superintendent Jim Walker tells the Arizona Daily Sun that administrators will discuss that next week.

The school board met Tuesday night to consider Howard's dismissal but voted against it.

The teacher had realized two first-graders were missing from her classroom after lunch in January and searched for them. But she didn't tell the main office that they were gone for nearly an hour.

The boys were found hours later at a gas station two miles away.

A phone number listed for a Melanie Howard in Page went unanswered Thursday.
