MONROE - At a meeting Monday, the Monroe school board:

• Received the 2016 district audit report, which found nothing new, according to Daniel Jacobson of accounting firm Reffue, Pas, Jacobson, Knox & Koster. "We had basically the same findings as every year," Jacobson said, noting that the number of staff members in the district doesn't allow for enough segregation of duties.

District Administrator Cory Hirsbrunner praised Business Administrator Ron Olson for handling the finances. "He's been a huge asset to the district," she said. Jacobson agreed; Olson gave credit to his staff.

• Recognized Rachel Showers, Monroe High School English teacher, for winning the Lamp of Learning Staff Excellence Award for February.

• Accepted the resignation of Lisa Cleary, Abraham Lincoln Elementary School health assistant.

• Approved the retirement of Ann Prophett, Abraham Lincoln fifth-grade teacher.

• Noted Wisconsin Association of School Boards recognitions: Monroe school board clerk Michael Boehme achieved a level two recognition, and member Dan Bartholf achieved level one.

• Gave final approval to 17 policy reviews and revisions.

• Went into closed session to discuss the search for a new superintendent and preliminary non-renewals of employee contracts.

School board candidate Cheryl McGuire attended the meeting with her husband as members of the public.

At a meeting Feb. 16, the Monroe school board met for a closed-session discussion regarding the superintendent search.
