Long Time Fox C-6 School Board Member Cheryl Hermann Steps Down

Fox C-6 school board member Cheryl Hermann has officially stepped down from her position on the Fox C-6 school board.  It was announced in the September 18, 2014 Arnold-Imperial Leader newspaper article written by Kim Robertson.

You can find the story here:

Cheryl Hermann served on the Fox C-6 school board as a volunteer for the past 15 years. I recently wrote about the issues surrounding the "unhiring" of her daughter earlier this week in my article about the upcoming state audit:

Cheryl Hermann was on the school board during the 2002 state audit of the Fox C-6 School District. Cheryl stated incorrectly at one of the 2014 August BOE meetings that the state auditor didn't find any problems during the 2002 audit. I wrote about this as well in the following article:

Cheryl Hermann was also on the Fox C-6 school board when former superintendent Dianne Brown-Critchlow was hired as Fox's next superintendent in November 2004 taking over the job when former superintendent Jim Chellew retired June 30, 2005. 

Cheryl was there during the sky rocketing rise in Superintendent salary as well. She was Willfully Blind to the problems going on in the district even with years of requests to look into what was occurring in the district. 

Cheryl Hermann ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Jefferson Count council a couple of years ago against Renee Reuter. When Cheryl ran for a seat on the Jefferson County council, she commented in the paper that she would step down from her position on the school board if she won a seat on the council.

The Fox C-6 school board can appoint someone to fill Cheryl Hermann's remaining term on the school board according to school district policies. Cheryl Hermann's term was set to expire in April 2015.

Thank you Cheryl Herman for your years of service to the Fox C-6 school district.

You can download the latest 2014 "draft" copies of Fox C-6's Policies and Regulations using the link below. I've compiled the entire set of Fox C-6's Policies and Regulations into a single PDF document. The single PDF file makes it very easy for parents and staff to search and locate school district Policies and Regulations.

Trying to find a policy on Fox's website is rather difficult since all of the policies are listed by policy number as individual PDF documents. If you don't know the Policy or Regulation number you will find yourself searching for a very long time.

Our school district's Policies and Regulations have been getting "revised" and "updated" for the last 4+ years while under Dianne Brown-Critchlow's watch. The first "draft" release was posted on the district website in March 2012 after having to make a follow up request that they get posted for the public per Dianne Critchlow's statement at the March 2012 BOE meeting.

With all that's going on in the district it will most likely be next year before the latest version of our school board Policies and Regulations are approved and adopted.
