Kewaunee hires new principal, switches schedule

A new face in the principal’s office will not be the only change for students when they return to Kewaunee High School in the fall. After being on a trimester schedule since 2011, students will return to a more traditional semester schedule this fall. Superintendent Karen Treml says a lot of research went into the decision to switch back from a trimester schedule, which some experts say is better because of the shorter terms and less core classes taking place at once.

The schedule change comes at the same time Michael Bennett takes over as Kewaunee principal for Mark Dax, who resigned his post in March. Treml says it will be a bit of homecoming for Bennett, who comes from Texas but has northeast Wisconsin roots.
