It was announced during the Dickinson Public School Board meeting that Vince Reep will be resigning after 41 years of service. Reep will leave his position at the Dickinson Public Schools as the assistant superintendent effective June 30, 2017.

Reep is one of four employees whose resignation was announced on Monday evening.

Barbara Binstock will be resigning from her position as a first grade instructor at Jefferson Elementary School after 40 years of service. Nancy Mack, a third grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary School, will also be resigning after 40 years of service. James A. Peters will be resigning as a science instructor at Hagen Junior High School after 26 years of service. All of these resignations will be effective on May 26, 2017.

"I think I calculated beforehand that is 147 years of combined experience," said board member Brent Seaks. "That is a staggering loss of experience for a district."

The school board accepted $375,060 from Harlow's Bus Sales for four 77-seat passenger buses for middle school transportation. The buses will have heated windshield wipers and stronger heaters for the bus route.

"In a winter like this year, it's an issue where we want to have clear windshields," Reep said. "We decided to spend the additional money for heated wiper blades this time."

Reep said that he and Doug Sullivan, DPS superintendent, have been in contact with city officials to make sure that 21st Street would be plowed to allow traffic to the new middle school which sits between State Avenue and 30th Avenue West.

"Dr. Sullivan and I met just last week with Shawn Kessel (city administrator) and Craig Kubas (city engineer)," Reep said. "We've talked about a number of solutions that might have to happen next fall. The conversation is ongoing. Obviously one of our first concerns, when that building is occupied, not having 21st open is not an option."
