Coordinator position greenlighted

Elementary students in the gifted and talented program will now have a coordinator to lead the program.

Red Wing School Board members on Monday approved the new position, which will likely be filled by Burnside teacher Char Auge, said Supt. Stan Slessor.

Burnside Elementary Principal Sheila Beckner said the job will mean fostering enrichment for all students. "We believe it's about raising expectations, raising skills for all our kids," she said.

Auge, who is certified for the program, was targeted by administrators for her experience and familiarity with Red Wing's elementary system.
