Omro School District Gains Restraining Order Against School Board Member

A Winnebago County judge is granting the Omro School District a restraining order against one of its school board members. District administrators are claiming there was harassment by Joanie Beem – but the nature of the alleged harassment has not been disclosed. Omro Schools made headlines back in July after citizens challenged a decision of administration and the board to fire a middle school language arts teacher – who was later re-hired following protests and rallies from hundreds of students, former students, parents, and other teachers.
