The New Lisbon School Board accepted the resignation of Junior High/High School Principal Scott Uppena at its monthly meeting Monday night.  The Board expressed appreciation for his service to the New Lisbon School District and waived his $1000 penalty fee.  Uppena took a similar position in the Royall School District but will continue to be accessible to New Lisbon staff.  The Board then went into Closes Session to discuss the hiring of a new high school principal.  Superintendent Dennis Birr said, “there were 29-candidates for the open position.”
