Rushford-Peterson education director resigns


Mon, May 23rd, 2011
Posted in Education

At a huge loss to the district, Community Education Director Beth Theede is resigning from her position, effective May 26th. Instrumental to the district, Theede has assisted in the significant growth of the district's Lille By Preschool, as well as coordinating enrichment classes, sports education and participation events, and art and music development programs. She has also been critical in the shift of Rushford's Park and Rec program from city to district hands in 2010.

"I want to publicly thank the board, district, and staff," noted Theede at the Monday, May 16th school board meeting. "Thank you for letting me be a part of it these last five years. The programs have come an incredibly long way."

Theede will be taking on a new position, beginning June 1st, at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse in the Continuing Education and Extension Department. She will serve as an outreach specialist in developing youth programs at the university. Theede also hopes the change will allow her more time with her husband Paul and three children; Avery (4), Madelyn (2), and Drew (1).

In the meantime, the district will begin the search for a replacement to the position of Community Education Director. Both the board and Superintendent Chuck Ehler feel that the position goes hand-in-hand with public relations. "It's an opportunity for someone to be a bridge with the community and it's a huge asset for the district to have that person," added Theede.

Also discussed at the meeting was the progression of selecting student representatives to the school board. Superintendent Ehler has discussed the matter with other districts in an effort to come up with guidelines for the positions. Based on his recommendations, the board has approved a policy for student representatives to begin with the 2011-2012 school year. Interested students will need to submit a resumé and letter of intent to the district no later than Wednesday, May 25th. A sub-committee of staff chosen by High School Principal Shane McBroom will select one or two candidates per grade. These representatives will be non-voting members, but their input on behalf of the student body will be critical to the district.

The Joint Facilities Task Force will be hosting a meeting, open to the public, Tuesday, June 7th, a 6:00 pm in the high school biology room to determine how to proceed with options for district facilities. The school board, district administrative staff, and ICS .....
