— Principals' offices at Baldwin schools won't be getting any new occupants anytime soon, thanks to action this week by school board members.

Supt. John Nuspl said the board approved contract extensions for principals at each of the district's five schools and for an assistant principal at Baldwin High School.

Two-year contract extensions were granted for: Joe Gresnick, high school principal; Allen Poplin, assistant BHS principal; Connie Wright, junior high principal; Tom Mundinger, Baldwin elementary principal; and Gus Wegner, Marion Springs principal.

Bill Scott, a teacher and principal, was granted a one-year contract extension. The reason: Scott is a full-time teacher, and the district renegotiates teacher contracts every year.

Also at this week's meeting, a committee recommended unanimously that the "positive attitude, self-esteem" class be continued as a requirement at BHS.

The class covers a variety of topics, from personal finance to drug education. It recently came under scrutiny primarily because of its human sexuality curriculum.

The district has no plan to discontinue a policy allowing parents with religious convictions against the curriculum to remove their children from all or part of the class.
