Badger board officially disapproves of a board members’ conduct

The Badger School Board passed a motion formerly disapproving of board member Curt Hauger’s conduct against a district employee at the January 30, 2017 meeting by a 5-1 vote at its last regularly scheduled meeting on April 10. Hauger voted against the motion. 

The board arrived at this decision after reviewing the results of an investigation looking into the allegations against Hauger and the next steps in responding to the allegations during a closed meeting session. Under this motion, school board members had concerns over how board member Hauger conducted himself at this January 30 meeting. The board authorized the investigation into his behavior at this meeting. 

“The board disapproves of the following conduct: Mr. Hauger made physical contact with a district employee during the January 30, 2017 school board meeting for the purpose of demonstrating a low-level criminal assault,” Board Chairperson Jamie Isane read as part of the motion. “Mr. Hauger did not ask for permission to make physical contact with the employee, did not warn the employee before the physical contact occurred and took the employee by surprise with the physical contact.”

Also under this motion, it read Mr. Hauger was to not engage in the behavior discussed in the future. If he would, the school board has the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including removal from the school board.
