Franklin School Board chairman calls it quits
Most recently, he and SAU 18 Superintendent Maureen Ward were accused of mismanagement in leading the school boards’ joint decision not to rehire former football coach Greg Husband.
Yonaitis, 54, moved to Franklin in 2003 and joined the board in 2004. He has fought sometimes bitter battles to keep the school board in control of school district funding. Recently, he was one of the leaders in a meeting between council and school board members to stop the fighting in city government.
“For both school board members and city council members … please continue to try and work out your differences. A good way to accomplish this is to leave your personal agendas at the door,” he said.
Achievements he recalls during his time on the board include turning school budgets “from confusing unknown structures to ones that are easy to read and more transparent, fiscally sound and well-managed,” and “a balanced budget with funds remaining that are used to maintain our three city-owned schools.”
“And we secured a $2 million dollar grant to improve our teaching standards to bring our district from bottom five in the state to being a model for other districts to follow around the state and the country,” he said.
