TOMAHAWK – A special School District of Tomahawk Board of Education committee examining rebalancing representation on the board will hold informational public meetings next month.

Since Aug. 2023, the Reapportionment Subcommittee, made up of board members Kay Kissinger Wolf, Shar Kirsch and Dave Long; Lincoln County Clerk Chris Marlowe; and community members Marguerite Lyskawa, Ken Schulz and Jon Long, has been exploring ways to alter how the board is composed to better reflect the district’s population distribution.

Last month, the committee presented its work to the board and said it aimed to provide the public with information on its efforts.

“Community members are invited and encouraged to come to these meetings to learn more about the reasons we are looking into this, as well as the options the committee is currently looking at,” the committee said in a release. “Our goal is to both educate and get feedback from the community.”

Meetings will be held in the district meeting room (Room 298), located directly across from the district office, on Wednesday, March 13, at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.; Tuesday, March 19 at 5:30 p.m.; and Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m.

Those who attend the meetings are asked to use the auditorium entrance.
