FHS expands opportunities for alternative, online learning
Fairfield High School’s alternative school will have several changes this coming school year, including a new instructor, a new location and online learning.
The Fairfield Community School District Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Opportunity Center instructor Todd Warnecke Monday evening and approved hiring Nathon Watson of Stockport as the new instructor.
FHS principal Art Sathoff said Watson was a “very good substitute at the high school and the Opportunity Center” last year, and Watson wrote in his application letter that he enjoyed the experience.
Watson, who served in the U.S. Army, also has experience as the bully prevention coordinator in the Van Buren school district and as a work-experience coordinator.
In Warnecke’s letter to the school board, he indicated he would be accepting a position in the Oskaloosa Community School District for the coming school year.
Warnecke was instrumental in setting up Fairfield’s alternative school program and spent the first semester of the 2004-05 school year planning the curriculum, establishing an application procedure for students and finding a location for the school in the lower-level of the Fairfield Senior Citizen Center.
