There will be at least one staff opening for the Baldwin-Woodville School District next year.

During the monthly board meeting last week, the Board approved the retirement for Karrie Johnson. A Special Education teacher at Viking Middle School, Johnson started with Baldwin-Woodville in August 1997 and will have completed 25 years at the end of this year.

Johnson’s retirement was far from the only personnel move approved.

Approvals were given to:

• Nate Palmer and Charlie Bignell as middle school boys basketball coaches.

• Christopher Fuhrman as a junior varsity girls basketball coach.

• Chelsey Ricketts as a middle school track and field coach.

• Kelli Larson as a mental health navigator.

• Heather Peterson as a school counselor.

The following resignations were approved:

• Keith Stuedemann as junior varsity boys soccer coach.

• Libby Whirry as junior varsity tennis coach.

• Angie Benson as cheerleading coach.

• Dave Ramberg and Tim Monicken as middle school wrestling coaches.

• Tracy Crowley as a special education paraprofessional.

• Lauren Burks as an occupational therapist.

• Jennifer Smith as Community Education/Mentorship Director.

The Board also held a preliminary discussion on the 2022-23 calendar in which it’ll be either a week-long Thanksgiving break or a week-long Spring break. The calendar will get approved next month.
