Ms. Thorne:

We are aware that this is highly unorthodox and without precedent, but the Executive Board has deemed it necessary to appoint a candidate for the vacant teacher position as expeditiously as possible.

We understand that it falls to you to interview teachers for vacancies and, rest assured, the Board continues to place significant value on your personal judgement. However, for this particular circumstance, we were required to bypass standard protocol.

The individual we have chosen is qualified to teach both science and mathematics and we believe they will be a valuable asset to Sumter Academy’s faculty. With Ms. Verner on extended sick leave, it is our hope that the new teacher will alleviate some of the burden on the faculty.

If you find that our decision was made in error and that the new teacher is not a suitable fit for the Academy, we will discuss their removal at a later date. Attached is their complete file with all related qualifications and background.

The new teacher will be arriving this afternoon at 12:30 PM. We sincerely apologize for the short notice and hope that you will make this transition as seamless as possible for the students.
