New school board members sworn in at meeting

WAUSA — Wausa School Board members put things in place for the new year during the Thursday evening, Jan. 19 meeting. Daniel Story and Otto Woockman, who were unopposed in the 2016 election, sat in on their first meeting as new members of the Wausa School Board. Story and Woockman along with Terry Nelson, who was re-elected to the board in the General Election in November, were sworn into office during the meeting.
Board members elected Mike Kumm as the president and Brian Wakeley as the vice-president for the Wausa School board. Terry Nelson will serve as the secretary.
Board members agreed to a $900 raise which will put the base pay at $34,200 for teachers and administrative staff.
The amount is fair according to Supt. Brad Hoesing.
“This is a fair amount. I feel it is a good deal,” Hoesing said. “Members of the Budget and Negotiation Committee approved the amount. Everyone was happy.”
