District sees low teacher turnover with 4 new faces

It’s mostly business as usual as a new school year approaches in the Northern Ozaukee School District. There are no new policies or procedures of significance, there are no new structures, and very few new teachers — which is a good thing.
“We are pleased to be returning the vast majority of our teaching staff,” Supt. David Karrels said. “We had one of the lowest numbers of teacher turnover in the area and I believe this a direct result of the positive culture and atmosphere we have built across the district.  There are only four different teachers, total, across all of the schools.  We also added an additional second-grade teacher because of an increase in our enrollment.”
The new teachers are Devin Scherff, second grade; Steve Akin, high school math; Nathan Kilps, middle/high school art; and Helina Salazar, middle/high school Spanish.
The elementary school will have a new principal in Lynn Kucharski, who replaces the retired Cynthia Dallman.
What is new is the district’s website, which recently made its debut. Its address is
“The website is designed to be very user friendly and a great resource for current and prospective families,” Karrels said. “We are also continuing one of our key strategic goals of increasing our social media presence with very active Facebook accounts at the elementary, middle, high school and district levels.”
Among the website’s features are photographs, quick links and calendars.
Also shiny and new is the middle school’s gymnasium floor, which received an overhaul during the summer.
It cost $13,800, with $12,500 of that amount being offset by donations from Port Washington State Bank ($6,000), the district’s Booster Club ($5,000) and the district’s Parent-Teacher Resource group ($1,500).
