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.”
