The Stevens Point Area Board of Education wants to hire a facilitator to try the resolve the dysfunction between board members and some administrative staff, particularly Superintendent of Schools Attila Weninger.
The board said Monday, Oct. 28, it would engage Dale M. Feinauer, a University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh professor of management and human resources and a former School Board member in Omro.
Members voted 7-1 to have Feinauer meet with them in a closed session, with Lisa Totten abstaining, saying her issues are with trust rather than other items. Voting in the majority were Terry Rothmann, Angel Faxon, Jeff Presley, Jeff Ebel, Chris Scott, Renae Sheibley and Kim Shirek. Opposed was Bob Larson.
Feinauer, who attended the meeting, said he had looked at videos of board meetings and realized the board “has a significant amount of conflict.”
