The Storm Lake school board Wednesday afternoon accepted seven requests for early retirement.
Retiring at the end of the current school year are… high school math teacher Janet Anderson, elementary dean of students Rick Anderson, elementary ELL teacher Jolene Davis, middle school guidance counselor Dave Larson, high school guidance counselor Craig Lyon, middle school social worker Rhonda Mangold, and elementary special education teacher Carol Reinders.
Last month, the board approved early retirements to community education coordinator Pat Fisher and transportation foreman Paul Heide.
Superintendent Carl Turner said the district is losing some phenomenal people, but are happy they have the opportunity to retire. Board president Peter Steinfeld said the board is grateful and thankful for all their years of service.
