Petitions are circulating on-line and at Waupaca High School in support of long-time Social Studies teacher Joe Janssen. Janssen, the chair of the Social Studies Department, last month was named on a public school board meeting agenda as receiving a preliminary notice of non-renewal, although the board then failed to act on the issue at that March meeting. The school board did meet in closed session this past Monday on the issue. An online petition supporting Janssen was nearing 400 signatures, while students at the high school are circulating their own petition. The issue is not on the school board’s agenda for this coming Tuesday, but sources say the issue is likely to be addressed during the public comment portion of the meeting.
