Meeting Tuesday: Smolek's final remarks set|
A light mid-summer agenda may be sparked by District Administrator Dr. Steve Smolek’s presentation to the Antigo board of education Tuesday.
The board will convene at 7 p.m. in the Middle School library with only 13 action items up for consideration.
The session will open with citizens and delegations followed by an agenda item labeled “superintendent presentation.”
Smolek who will be attending his last school board meeting prior to retiring on June 30, is expected to present the board with his $2,400 check for liquidation damages caused by leaving his contract early.
The board accepted his resignation/retirement last week and named Director of Instruction Cindy Fischer as acting administrator. It is also accepting applications, by invitation, to fill the post on an interim basis while it initiates a search process.
Smolek has led the position for 11 months.
The remainder of the agenda is quiet.
The board will:
—review enrollments for four-year-old kindergarten sections for the upcoming school year.
—consider expanding the Antigo Independently Motivated Student Academy, a virtual program that is in its first year of implementation. Plans call for raising the cap from 50 to 75 students.
—review potential upgrades to the district’s Internet service with a goal of improving speed and reliability to the rural elementary schools. Cost is figured at $750 a month per building.
—take a look at the final status of the 2012-13 budget and the upcoming 2013-14 budget.
—and review summer maintenance plans.
In personnel matters, the board is expected to hire Anita Mattek as dean of students/instructional technology coordinator. She is currently a district physical education teacher and will replace Brian Misfeldt, who is moving to the Middle School principal’s post.
The board will accept the resignation of Barb Baginski as housekeeping personnel at the Middle School. It will also fill a vacancy for vocal music instructor at the middle and high school.
