Local school board roundup: Treasurer of Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Educational Service District resigns
∫ The Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Educational Service District Board of Education’s Facility Committee is recommending the district get a second opinion from a second architect about the scope of work needed for the roof at Pied Piper School.
District officials are currently working with Livonia-based architects OHM Advisors and construction manager Wolgast Construction to address heat loss from the building, which has led to some leaks in the school’s roof.
Committee Chairman Nick Brege told the AMA ESD Board of Education last week the committee started a list prioritizing some of the upcoming projects at Pied Piper School.
AMA ESD Superintendent Scott Reynolds told the committee he is considering a new facilities director position for the district. The position would lead the planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of the district’s facilities maintenance and operations.
Reynolds said the position requires board approval before it could be posted.
Donna Baranyai, treasurer of the AMA ESD board, submitted her letter of resignation to the board, effective July 27, 2021.
“I have enjoyed my years on the board and alongside many wonderful members,” she said in the letter of resignation. “The AMA ESD staff is amazing and I know they will continue to work hard for the students within the AMA ESD.”
It was not immediately clear why Baranyai resigned. She has served on the board for nearly 10 years.
