Macomb School Superintendent to Retire

Dr. Alene Reuschel

The Macomb School District will soon begin the search for a new superintendent. Dr. Alene Reuschel will retire next year.

She seriously considered retirement this year after the governor proposed cutting pension benefits for educators.  However,  she decided she had too much work left to do.

She said, “We're right at the brink of doing some really fantastic things here, not only in Macomb, but just in education we're just at the very cusp of what we're going to see.”

Supt. Alene Reuschel

The Macomb School District will save nearly $125,000 on a roof repair project on the oldest section of Lincoln School. The savings comes from re-using some of the roofing material, which is also good for the environment.

The estimated cost was nearly $420,000. The bid was based on a “green” option that will re-install much of the same material.

Superintendent Alene Reuschel said the district can set an example.

Supt. Alene Reuschel

The Macomb School District will spend $204,000 to increase its computer network capacity tenfold in time for next school year.

She said, “We will make sure that every classroom-grades 7-12-will have the equivalent of 30 access points within a room which means you can have 30 units needing wireless service of some kind in a room.”
