BD School Board Approves Tentative Agreement

10/14/11 – The Beaver Dam School Board approved a tentative agreement last night that could settle a lawsuit filed by a district employee late last year. That’s according to Superintendent Steve Vessey, who says the agreement approved in open session must still be approved by Cheryl Grulke, a district secretary who filed a lawsuit seeking punitive damages to, in her attorney’s words, deter Vessey and the district from anymore violations of the states open records law. Last year the district settled another open records lawsuit that was filed by Grulke’s husband. District officials won’t comment on the details in the agreement until it’s finalized, and an attempt to get in contact with the attorney for Grulke was unsuccessful late last night.
