The New Ulm District 88 School Board is scheduled to vote on a resolution to fill a school board vacancy by appointment during it’s study session meeting this (THU) evening. The open seat on the board follows the early resignation of Sharon Gieseke, who was elected in 2012. Following her resignation last month, the school board invited district residents to apply to temporarily fill the seat. The District 88 Personnel Committee will present their recommendation for the appointment to the whole board this evening. The new appointee will serve through the end of the year, and the seat will be on the ballot this November.
