Board Says No to Removing Superintendent Position
By Sara Marls
The Stevens Point School Board on Monday voted to no longer consider removing the district superintendent position once Attila Weninger’s resignation takes effect in June.
At a 5-3 decision, the board agreed to stop studying the potential of the idea regarding a board- run district, with board members Lisa Totten, Kim Shirek and Alex Kochanowski voting in the minority.
In June Kochanowski brought the idea before the board, citing the school district of Omro- a city with a population of about 3,500 near Oshkosh- operated without a superintendent. Kochanowski had since championed for the removal of the top administrative position in Stevens Point, saying it could work with a strong board in place.
