Antigo superintendent of schools resigns post at Tuesday meeting
space
Eleven months and 19 days after being selected as Antigo school district administrator, Dr. Colleen Timm has resigned.

The move came during a closed session at the conclusion of the board’s informal meeting as a committee of the whole Tuesday evening.

She tendered her resignation in closed session and we accepted it, Bolding, who admitted to being surprised by the abrupt announcement, said. ‘This is all still pretty fresh.

Timm said today that she is leaving Antigo for a position in public education closer to her family home near Green Bay.

It came together fairly quickly for me, she said, declining to name the job until it becomes official later this week. It’s a great opportunity for me professionally and personally.

The administrator also announced her decision to staff in a Tuesday evening e-mail that largely focused on the strides Antigo is making in the area of literacy, consolidation, policy updates and long-range planning, including increasing teacher compensation.

With all that said, I am writing to share with you that I will be leaving the district at the end of the month, she wrote.

Timm said today that the strides she outlined in that letter will last well beyond me.

It’s the right work, she said. These are part of the foundation for continuing to bring success for students.

Timm came to Antigo with a board mandate to advance consolidation efforts already in place and improve student achievement. But in building what she termed a foundation for student success, she tore down some walls, and some in the community did not take kindly to her efforts.

I think circumstances just became too difficult for her to function any more, Boldig said. I think it got to a point where there were certain factions within the community that made it impossible for her to do the work we wanted her to do.

Timm’s resignation means that the district is now seeking its fifth superintendent since the retirement of Roxann Bornemann, who held the job for six years, in 2012.

Boldig said the district will contact a search firm to help with the administrative search, and will likely seek an interim solution due to the timing of Timm’s decision, coming after most superintendent vacancies have already been posted and filled.

It’s difficult right now, he said.

Timm said she is proud of what has been accomplished in Antigo in her 11 1/2 months.

I really loved being here in Antigo, she said. It will always be a part of me. I’ll be rooting for this district and cheering its successes every step of the way.
