The resignation of Laurie Schmidt was accepted by the Weyauwega-Fremont Board of Education during its July 26 meeting.
Schmidt was the school district’s director of pupil services and curriculum.
She worked for the district a total of 11 years – the last seven years as the director of pupil services and curriculum, and the four years prior to that as a speech language pathologist.
Schmidt has accepted a position in the Winneconne Community School District.
Her first year she will be the director of curriculum and instruction, and in year two with the district, special education will be added to her job duties, mirroring what she did in the Weyauwega-Fremont School District.
Schmidt said her job in the Weyauwega-Fremont School District was her first job out of graduate school.
With 1,500 students, the Winneconne Community School District is a “little bit bigger district,” she said. “I just think I’m ready for a change. There’s so much pride in what we’ve done here, but I think we all know when it’s time to move on. It’s been a great place to be and a lot of opportunities to grow.”
During the board meeting, District Administrator F. James Harlan thanked Schmidt “for her years of service and the outstanding work she did for the district.”
