The Eden Prairie School Board’s Aug. 23 meeting agenda suggests that another board member resignation may be on the horizon.
The board agenda item “Required Board Action” has a single item beneath it: Resignation of Board Member.
When asked on Aug. 19 to elaborate, district Senior Director of Community Relations and Communications Brett Johnson said he had nothing further to add. “I do not have details, like you, I’ve been informed it will be discussed on Monday,” he said in an email.
If it turns out that another board member is resigning, it would be the second resignation from the board in less than five months. Veronica Stoltz resigned her seat in May when her family moved out of Minnesota. A special election is scheduled Nov. 2 to fill the remainder of her term.
Five candidates have filed to run for that seat. Filings closed Aug. 10.
Discussion of the possible resignation is under the Board Work agenda item scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
Parent survey results; COVID mitigation
The board also will hear the second part of a wide-ranging community survey conducted in June and a parent survey completed more recently.
Peter Leatherman, CEO of Minneapolis research firm Morris Leatherman, is scheduled to make a presentation of survey results to the board at 6:05 p.m. Leatherman reported results of the initial survey at the board’s June 28 meeting.
Superintendent Josh Swanson is scheduled to discuss recent COVID-19 layered mitigation strategies as part of his superintendent’s report at roughly 7:50 p.m. The district announced its strategies in an Aug. 17 message sent to families. See an EPLN report on that message here.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Administrative Services Center, 8100 School Road. The meeting also will be streamed here live on Zoom.
