School board grills superintendent

School board grills superintendent

Much of the Wishek School Board's nearly three-hour meeting on Nov. 12 was dedicated to the annual evaluation of Superintendent Shawn Kuntz. When it was over, Kuntz emerged with a satisfactory rating after receiving pointed criticism on several fronts. School Board President Curt Meidinger took Kuntz to task for not following through with bi-monthly reports on school operations, specifically on mandated Monday administration meetings. Kuntz questioned whether such a report was in the realm of the board's authority. Board member Trina Schilling backed Meidinger. She said his failure to communicate with Meidinger as requested, “is why it's on the evaluation.” When asked to elaborate on his concerns by Kuntz, Meidinger questioned whether Kuntz and principals Yvonne Englehart and Renae Bosch were communicating effectively. Meidinger said that in one meeting that when Kuntz was talking about an issue, “You were talking and (I could see that) Renae was baffled. I knew it was a line of bullshit,” Meidinger said. “I want to be sure you guys are meeting.”
