REEDSVILLE - Reedsville Superintendent Kristoffer Brown resigned from his position on Monday night.


His resignation came following a closed session regarding school personnel. Brown's resignation will be effective June 30, 2022, the end of the fiscal school year.


Brown has accepted a position with a district on the other side of Wisconsin, one that will not be a superintendent role.


The Reedsville School Board is waiting for the April election to proceed with any decision on how to move forward with the hiring process.


"The board decided on no action right now until after the election essentially," school board president Andrew Maertz said. "Odds are, we'll probably end up posting it, but I do know that we may have internal candidates interested."


Maertz said that he would have chosen to proceed with the hiring process immediately.


"There's a lot of unknowns right now. Personally, I wanted to start moving on the process, like, yesterday. Tuesday, I was hoping that we could post (the position) and move forward, but the rest of the board felt that we should wait until after the elections for whatever reason," Maertz said.


Maertz said that the district could use a firm to help with the process.


Brown was hired by the district in spring 2019 out of five finalists for the position to replace the retiring Tony Butturini.


During the three years Brown was superintendent, the school moved seventh and eighth grade students into the high school building, making it a junior-high school building, and recently approved renovations to the elementary school.
