The Minooka Community High School Board President says rumors regarding racism allegations against a member of the school board are false. Board President Mike Brozovich sent a letter to parents last night following a passionate and packed school board meeting at the high school auditorium. Hundreds of former and current students attended Tuesday night’s meeting to speak out against the departure of their beloved principal Ron Kiesewetter. The students claim a school board member made a racist remark, and Kiesewetter spoke out against the member. Brozovich says not only are the rumors false, the resignation of Kiesewetter was mutual.
Students staged a walk out on Wednesday morning just one day after that hotly contested school board meeting. Students protest for part of the morning before returning to class and resuming a normal school day.
