White Lake will keep closed campus|
April 24, 2013
Following an extensive review lasting several months, the White Lake board of education Tuesday decided to maintain the current closed campus policy.
The action came at the board’s regular April meeting, which also included a mix of reorganizational matters.
According to District Administrator Bill Fisher, the board has been reviewing various options for open and closed camps with members of the community.
“We will continue to have closed campus during noon hour,” Fisher said adding the policy applies to all students through 12th grade.
The board also set upcoming meeting days, reviewed plans for a Northern Lakes Conference meeting that will be jointly hosted by Elcho and White Lake on May 8 at Bass Lake Country Club.
It also approved an occupational therapy service contract for 2013-14 with Wendy DeNamur; and a speech and language contract with Betsy Skaggs. A contract for nursing services was returned to the Personnel Committee for further review.
The board also:
—approved diploma recommendations, recognizing Hannah Schulz as valedictorian and Abby Heistad, salutatorian.
—heard what Fisher called a “really nice” presentation on the math program by instructor Ben Kessler.
—and approved an expanded summer school program.
In reorganizational matters, Chris Berry was welcomed back to the board of education.
Berry, who served on the board until three years ago, was returned to the panel in the spring election, along with incumbent Sandy Gallagher. Incumbent Jayne McCarthy declined to seek re-election.
Scott Popelka was returned as board president with Lewis Bowman as vice-president. Sandy Gallagher will remain clerk while Carol Blawat will take over the treasurer duties previously handled by McCarthy.
Gallagher will serve as the district’s representative to the Cooperative Educational Service Agency No. 9 convention.
CoVantage was named the official depository and the Antigo Daily Journal as the official newspaper for publication for minutes.
