Superintendent: A vendetta against one employee threatens 21 other jobs in Sartell

ST. CLOUD - Nearly two dozen employees of the Sartell-St. Stephen school district could be out of work on July 1 if the school board doesn't approve their contracts this week.

But that could continue to prove difficult as half of the six-member board - on the superintendent's recommendation - has tried to approve the contracts for months while the other three members have voted down any motions to approve them.

The three opponents of the pacts - Emily Larson, Jen Smith and Scott Wenshau - have said they want the contracts to be voted on individually instead of all together in one motion. But Interim Superintendent Tom Lee has warned that would set a dangerous precedent "that the board, with no supervisory responsibility, can pick somebody off that they just don't like."
