During a special board meeting Monday night, the New Lisbon School Board hired a new superintendent/business manager.  According to the High School Principal Scott Uppena, Dennis Birr is a former math teacher in the Reedsburg School District and is the current business manager at eh Orfordville-Parkview School District south of Madison.  Birr currently lives in the Reedsburg area.  Birr will visit the New Lisbon School District several times before he begins his duties in March.  The district will host an open house within the near future for staff, students, and community members to meet Birr.  Uppena said, “Current District Administrator Tom Andres is retiring and ready to move on to new challenges.  Also long-time bookkeeper, Terri Haske, recently retired.”  Uppena said, “Birr will complete state reports and manage resources, but the New Lisbon School District anticipates hiring a part-time bookkeeper.”
