Meeting on rural schools moved to Volm
space
Antigo school district Director of Business Services Mary Jo Filbrandt will be among the featured speakers when the Assembly Speaker’s Task Force on Rural Schools convenes Wednesday in Antigo.

The public hearing will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Volm Theater. The location was changed from the media tech center due to logistical issues and expected public interest.

Others giving testimony will include Bill Fisher, who serves as superintendent for both the Elcho and White Lake school districts; Walter Leipart, Merrill school district administrator; Karen Wendorf-Heldt, administrator for the Cooperative Educational Service Agency No. 9, headquartered in Tomahawk; and Dawn Nordine, executive director for Wisconsin Virtual Schools.

The second portion of the hearing will be open for public testimony. Teachers, parents and local taxpayers are all invited to attend.

The hearing is expected to conclude by 4:30 p.m.

The meeting will end a busy day in the north for the task force, which is chaired by 34th District Assemblyman Rob Swearingen of Rhinelander.

The day will open at 10 a.m. at Elcho, when the committee—which also includes 35th District Rep. Mary Czaja of Irma and 36th District Rep. Jeff Mursau of Crivitz—will tour the school.

At 12:30 p.m. the group is scheduled for a similar walk-through of Antigo High School, led by Principal Tom Zamzow.

Those unable to attend the hearing may send input and suggestions to Czaja’s office at rep. czaja@legis.wi.gov.

In addition to Swearingen, Czaja and Mursau, who are all Republicans, the task force includes Rep. Warren Petryk (R-Eleva), Rep. Ed Brooks (R-Reedsburg), Rep. Mary Williams (R-Medford), Rep. Michael Schraa (R-Oshkosh), Rep. Stephen Nass (R-Whitewater), Rep. Chris Danou (D-Trempealeau), Rep. Sondy Pope (D-Cross Plains) and Rep. Mandy Wright (D-Wausau). Rep. Fred Clark (D-Baraboo) is the vice-chair.
