MEQUON, Wis. — A group of parents have filed petition signatures to recall members of the Mequon-Thiensville School Board.
The parents said they were upset over the board’s handling of the district’s COVID-19 protocols.
They want four of the seven members replaced.
The group needed to collect 4,150 signatures from registered voters to legally file the recall paperwork.
They said they turned more than 16,000 into the district offices Monday afternoon.
“We have successfully collected the signatures needed to recall all four members,” organizer Amber Schroeder told WISN 12.
The mom of three launched the grassroots effort earlier this summer.
She said they’re not politically motivated but believe the district’s COVID-19 mitigation strategies last year failed and the education of the students suffered.
Everything but tech support.
