“No,” said Lance Carlson, citing the building facility as needing another look. And just like that, the consent agenda, was dead in the water May 24 at the School Board meeting.
In a rare back-to-back ‘no’ vote, the Stanley-Boyd School Board also voted NOT to approve personnel changes, setting the stage for a coming closed session per Wisconsin 19.85.
“Three ‘no’ votes, three ‘yes’ votes, motion does not pass,” Secretary Sue Kiraly announced as the board split 5050 on the issue, with Hoffstatter, Seidl, and Ryan Lewallen voting NOT to confirm staff changes at the district. Among
the names up for consideration were three resignations: of Kristie Gustafson as Junior Class Adviser, Tessa Rauch as an elementary teacher, and Malorie Veroeven, also as an elementary teacher.
But while the board couldn’t necessarily stop resignations—(as was pointed out by Carlson)—they wanted to talk some more before approving new hires, these being two elementary positions, one middle school, and one high school position. That wasn’t all, though. Also up for discussion were advisor and coaching changes, these being Bridget Brenner’s appointment as the Assistant Director of Special Education, Erin Plombon’s appointment as the Drama and Play director, and English teacher Kayleigh Steinmetz as the 6-12 Reading Interventionist.
Also touched on at the May 24 board meeting were that the bus charge was going up five cents per mile, to 80 cents
