Muskego - With the appointment of Jeremiah Johnson as supervisor of buildings and grounds, the Muskego-Norway School District has filled the two top administrative spots that opened up this school year.
In December, the School Board approved Julie Kelly as director of business services to succeed Scot Ecker, who left at the end of December to become associate vice president and controller of Carthage College, Kenosha. Last week, the board approved Johnson to succeed Gary Rosploch, who will retire at the end of this month from the facilities post.
Johnson has been with the Muskego-Norway School District for 11 years, serving most recently as building operations supervisor for Bay Lane Middle School and Country Meadows Elementary School.
"He has done an outstanding job in his current role as the building operations supervisor for Bay Lane Middle and Country Meadows Elementary Schools," Dennis Bussen, assistant superintendent, said in a press release.
Johnson will have his hands full as he tries to meet the needs of the schools after two building-oriented referendums failed in recent years.
"There are some challenges with aging facilities and maintaining what we've got," Johnson acknowledged.
But he said he and Rosloch will work out priorities for moving forward.
Johnson, who begins March 1 and receive $84,800 annually, has an Energy Educator Specialist Certification from Energy Educators. He also is a member of the District Category 1 Leadership Team and is involved in the state Wisconsin Forward/Baldrige Training Certification training that focuses on the methods used by the most successful organizations and helps students apply them in their responsibilities.
Johnson holds a Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials Facility Manager Certification, has studied business management at MATC and has done school safety coordinator coursework through the Wisconsin School Safety Coordinator's Association.
"I am honored to lead a great facilities team in maintaining safe, clean and operational schools," Johnson said in the release.
