AV-W to consider security changes at next meeting
One seat on school board on spring election ballot

The Arbor Vitae-Woodruff School Board will consider a proposal next month to augment school security.

At its Jan. 13 meeting, the board could approve a contract with Eau Claire-based SDS Architects to prepare options for how to make the school building more secure.

One possible plan entails extending the main entrance of the school and requiring visitors to enter through the front office.

Interim District Administrator Richard Vought said schools around the country were considering similar changes. Vought, and some board members, have also said they have heard concerns about school security from district residents.

According to Vought, North Lakeland School and Minocqua-Hazelhurst-Lake Tomahawk Elementary School have added security measures to their front entrances.


AV-W board seat up for election

Nominations are open for a spot on the Arbor Vitae-Woodruff board.

Trish Teichmiller, the board’s vice president, holds the seat that will be up for election this spring. She is seeking another term.

As of late last week, Teichmiller was the only person to file candidacy papers, according to Vought.

Anyone interested in running for the board must file a notice of candidacy with the school district by Tuesday, Jan. 7.

School board members serve for three years.
