Julie Nicholas, a special education teacher at Lincoln Elementary School, 1102 N. Milner Road, has resigned from her post.

During a special meeting 5:30 p.m. Monday, the Ottawa Board of Education voted 5-0 to approve Nicholas’ resignation, effective Monday. Board members Dennis George and Susan Ward were not present.

Board members and Jeanne Stroh, Ottawa superintendent, did not discuss Nicholas’ resignation because it was a personnel matter.
