Waitsburg School Board will cover DW Combine Dec. 15
December 15, 2022
WAITSBURG—The Waitsburg School Board will meet Thursday, December 15, at 6:00 p.m. at the Waitsburg Elementary School Library. The agenda will include the results of a survey the Board sent to parents, students, and community members about the future of the DW Athletic Combine.
On November 16, 2022, the Dayton School Board voted to leave the DW Athletic Combine. Sam Korslund, the DW Athletic Director, read his letter of resignation sent to the Waitsburg and Dayton School Boards at the meeting. The Dayton Board took the recommendation from Korslund and the interim Superintendent Rich Stewart to leave the combine.
The DW Combine Committee has not met since October. Korslund canceled the December 12 meeting where the Waitsburg Board had hoped to present the results from the survey.
Board member Carol Clarke has been tasked to review and quantify the data from the survey, which will now be presented at the Board meeting. There were many responses, with the District requesting only one submission per person.
The Dayton School Board hired Korslund as the Athletic Director for the Dayton schools. It is expected that the Board will announce the hiring of an Athletic Director for the Waitsburg School District.
The agenda may include a discussion of the Superintendent search and the firm selected to find candidates.
