Milton Superintendent resigns

MILTON, Wis. -- (WMTV) School District of Milton Superintendent Dr. Tim Schigur resigned from his position, effective at the end of the school year June 30th. The announcement was made in a prepared statement issued by school board president Joe Martin.

Director of Administrative Operations Jerry Schuetz is also resigning.

"The past several months presented many different challenges for our board of education. We are, as a school board, directly responsible for creating some of those challenges and must now own them," Martin wrote in the prepared statement.

"Their resignations are completely voluntarily. The resignation agreements address issues with respect to potential claims against the district regarding the illegal release of their employment records earlier this year," Martin said.

According to his bio, Schigur has been working for the Milton school district since the 2007-2008 school year. He was the principal at Milton Middle School for six years before being named superintendent.
