Jurgella Elected FDL School Board President

The Fond du Lac School Board met last night, and elected their new officers for the the 2021/22 school board year. Board members elected Mark Jurgella as President, Linda Uselmann Vice President, Dr. Susan Jones Secretary, and Mark Stand Treasurer.

The board took up discussion regarding pay, and voted 5-2 to keep the current school board compensation the same as previous years, with school board members receiving $1600 per year, and the board president being paid $1800.

Also on the agenda last night was the approval of the 2-year contract for Dr. Jeffrey Flag, who was in attendance and told the board he’s excited to get to work within the district. “It’s an honor to serve the students, staff and greater community of Fond du Lac. I’m excited to get to work and really see what we can do to give the kids the skills, knowledge and self-efficacy that they need to do what they want to do when they leave our system. I’m excited to be here and thank you for the opportunity.” Flag is set to start as the new Fond du Lac School District superintendent July 1.
