PLUM CITY--Plum City Schools will be looking for a new boys basketball coach next year.
Wayne Radle submitted his resignation, which was approved by the Plum City School Board last week.
In addition, Troy Ingli and Nanette Murray were approved as the varsity football and volleyball coaches, respectively, for the upcoming fall sports season.
In other action, the board:
--Approved the Student Achievement Guarantee in Education (SAGE) contract for the next five years, with the district opting out on a yearly basis. Superintendent Mark Luebker said, with the student/teacher ratio now being 18:1 instead of 15:1, the district can meet the ratio for one section in first and third grade classes. Two sections are likely going to be needed in kindergarten and second grade classes. Luebker said there was discussion on a multi-age classroom if needed to meet requirements.
--Approved the hiring of Danni Noel as the K-12 Guidance Counselor. Middle School/High School Principal Paul Churchill informed the board Noel will spend 30 minutes a week in each middle school classroom (grades 6-8) this fall, talking to students about career planning and social life skills such as bullying and peer pressure. Noel is from Pepin.
--Approved salary freezes for support staff. Administrative contracts were on the agenda, but were tabled until a meeting Monday night.
--Heard from citizen Gary Lecheler who, along with wife Dianne, traveled with the seniors for the annual class trip to the East Coast. Lecheler told the board how much he enjoyed the trip and how found no complaints with how the students conducted themselves.
--Heard from Churchill three students--Ashley Longsdorf, Raquel Wieser and Abbie Hartung--attended the State FFA convention earlier this month with advisor Peg Skogen.
--Approved Shirley Gilles to be the board representative for the Plum City Educational Foundation.
--Set the next board meeting for 7 p.m. Monday, July 19.
