Wiedenhoeft elected president of Oshkosh school board

The Oshkosh school board elected new officers Monday night, all approved with unanimous votes.

Former Vice President Matt Wiedenhoeft will serve as president, with former President John Lemberger continuing to serve on the board in a non-officer role. Recently re-elected member Steve Dedow was chosen as the board’s new vice president.

Recently re-elected member Steve Eliasen was re-elected to his position as clerk, and Allison Garner was re-elected to serve as treasurer.

Teresa Collins, executive assistant in the district’s business office, was re-elected as the board’s secretary.

The board also voted on committee assignments for its members and discussed self-evaluations.

Following the board’s reorganization meeting, board members, administrators and community members gathered for a workshop with the strategic planning firm Big River Group, LLC, to discuss results of the Oshkosh 4 Education community survey. The topics discussed will eventually be rolled into specific directives that will be used to drive the district’s strategic planning. A strategic plan is expected to be formally adopted at the board’s May 2 meeting.
