End of the School Year Often Means Teacher, Administrator Resignations for FDL School District


Another school year has come to an end in the Fond du Lac School District and that often means a number of both teachers and administrators leaving the district for new positions elsewhere. District Superintendent Jim Sebert says it’s a newer trend, but not an uncommon one - especially with those in a younger age group. “We have a lot of our newer teachers who will be with us a year, maybe two, maybe three. They’re younger, and something happens in their personal life – maybe they get engaged, or they get married, or maybe they took a job here in Fond du Lac and they are really from Appleton, or they grew up in Marshfield – and what happens is we see people going back to those places on a regular basis,” Sebert said. He adds that research shows a vast majority of teachers work 25 to 30 miles from where they grew up.

Sebert says that even with teachers leaving, the good news is that the number of candidates applying for open positions is continuing to grow. “The pools are getting bigger, and now as we’re posting positions, we’re seeing bigger pools starting to come – not nearly what it used to be, where you’d get three-to-four hundred applications for an elementary teacher job, but it is getting better, and there are more people getting into the profession,” Sebert said.

Within the last month, the School Board approved the resignation of two assistant principals – Steve Hernandez and Brad Reinke - and was being asked to approve several teacher resignations at Monday night’s board meeting.
