School board to discuss new hire; approve retirement of business director

September 16, 2018

The Ludington Area School District (LASD) Board of Education on Monday is expected to hire one new teacher, and bid farewell to a veteran employee.

The school board will discuss approving the hiring of Lindsey Delpiere to teach second grade at Franklin Elementary School.

In the notes for Monday’s board meeting, LASD Superintendent Jason Kennedy wrote that Delpiere comes highly recommended and with experience teaching in first-, second- and third-grade classrooms at Reed City Schools.

“She is a true believer that building relationships with students and creating a safe and respectful classroom is of the utmost importance,” Kennedy wrote. “She has had experience implementing effective strategies to support student behavior (and) our interview team felt that she conveyed a strong commitment to students and that she would be a great fit for Franklin, the second-grade team, and our district.”

Delpiere earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education at Ferris State University with state teaching certification.

Additionally, the school board is expected to accept the retirement request of Bruce Doggett, director of business services, who has worked for the district for 21 years.

In the notes for Monday’s meeting, LASD Superintendent Jason Kennedy expressed gratitude for Doggett’s years of service.
