The Gardner Edgerton School Board released its official statement on the terminations of former administrators Bill Gilhaus, Lana Gerber and Christy Ziegler.

Board members voted to release a statement about the terminations during a March 10 board meeting. However, members refused to speak to media following that meeting, saying an official statement would soon be released.

The official statement reads: “On Feb. 27, the Gardner-Edgerton Board of Education, by a 4-3 vote, determined that it was in the best interest of the district to terminate the employment of administrators Bill Gilhaus, Lana Gerber and Christina Ziegler.¬† Statements of individual board members regarding the reasons for these terminations are not, and should not, be taken as the official position of the Gardner-Edgerton School District.”
