MORELAND, Idaho — The attorney for a popular eastern Idaho teacher who appears to have lost her job says they are considering their options.

Snake River High School science teacher Elaine Asmus kept her job last spring after former students rallied to her defense when the Snake River School District's Board of Trustees considered not renewing her contract.

Her attorney, Paul Stark, says Asmus had a disagreement with Laura Gabrylczyk, the wife of district Superintendent Mark Gabrylczyk.

He says Laura Gabrylczyk filed a formal complaint that led to the decision not to renew Asmus' contract.

The district changed course after packed public hearings that lasted 14 hours.

But Stark tells the Idaho State Journal (http://bit.ly/1mpAn4m) that the new contract the district offered Asmus contains vindictive and punitive language.

The district deemed the position vacant when Asmus didn't sign it.
