FOND DU LAC — Four members of the Fond du Lac School District administration and staff resigned last month, prompting a leadership shake-up at schools in the district.
The Fond du Lac School District Board met behind closed doors on Tuesday to discuss the departure of Evans Elementary School Principal Amy Retter, District Communications Coordinator Nicole Noonan, Human Resources Director Stacey Bramstedt and Director of Student Services Katie Moder.
Superintendent Jeffrey Fleig told the reporter that the resignations were unrelated and came on different days throughout August, with each pursuing new opportunities, ranging from accepting CESA 6 and other administrative roles in pursuit of their own studies.
In a letter to district staff on Tuesday, Fleig also said the board had approved five new trustees.
Former Wauwatosa School District Human Resources Supervisor Dean Nemoir will come out of retirement for the school year to serve as Fond du Lac’s Director of Human Resources, with Marisa Lombardo taking up her role next year.
Retired La Crosse principal Troy McDonald — who also has experience as a vice-principal at Fond du Lac High School — will become director of student services for Fond du Lac while the district finds someone one to fill the role permanently starting next fall.
Bob Lloyd, retired superintendent of the Lomira School District, will serve as vice-principal at Sabish Middle School. Theisen Middle School vice-principal Nick Shultis will move to Evans Elementary School principal, while Allison Birschbach will move from teacher on special assignment at Chegwin Elementary School to principal. Theisen’s assistant. All three are acting positions.
The district will seek to hire for these positions on a permanent basis beginning in 2023.
