FOND DU LAC (NBC 26) — School in Fond du Lac began Thursday, without four school administrators. The school board approved the resignations of Evans Elementary School principal Amy Rettler, District Coordinator of Communications Nicole Noonan, Director of Pupil Services Katie Moder and the Director of Human Resources Stacey Bramstedt at a meeting Tuesday night.
The resignations all occurred between Aug. 18 and Aug. 30. Fleig said the timing of the resignations was a coincidence.
"The timing is not great, you know, and right now I have four positions that we need to fill in," Fleig said. "We have a plan. We're working on it."
Superintendent Jeffrey Fleig said Noonan left to pursue a master's degree, Rettler accepted a job as a principal at a job in Campbellsport, and Moder and Bramsted accepted positions with the Cooperative Educational Services Agency 6, which provides services to school districts in the area.
"I think there's more movement than ever going on right now in school administration," Fleig said. "I don't think there is a shortage of people who are certified."
Fleig said the district has temporarily filled the positions of principal, director of human resources and director of pupil services and will be pursuing permanent replacements in the spring, who will start next school year. The district will post the position for communications coordinator in the coming weeks.
“I have 6,800 kids at school today, and they're in there and we have to provide them a great education," Fleig said. "That's what we're going to continue to do.”
NBC 26 reached out to school board president Mark Henschel but did not receive a response.
