Area school boards like Gibraltar Area Schools’ hope the worst is behind them when it comes to the pandemic. For over a year, COVID-19 has dominated the agendas of area school board meetings as they determined safe reopening protocols after the shutdown in March 2020. Gibraltar’s reopening took longer than other area school districts, not reopening its doors to elementary students until December and to its secondary kids in January. Newly re-elected Gibraltar School Board member Angela Sherman says it was hard to find the right solution for the issue as a parent and a community member with no common plan among all Door County schools.
Sherman adds that there are a lot of different issues she is looking forward to being able to accomplish after the pandemic put much of it on hold, including taking a deeper look into their enrollment and their financial health.
Door County’s school saw a fair amount of change in its school boards after last week’s election. Sherman will be joined by newcomers Amie Carriere and Erick Schrier on the Gibraltar Area School Board while Angela Kruse, Roger Wood, and Damion Howard were elected as new members of the Sturgeon Bay School Board.
