The Hamilton School Board accepted the retirement request of Hamilton High School Principal David Furrer, effective July 1, 2006.
Hamilton Superintendent Kathleen Cooke, Ph.D., said Furrer established strong relationships with students while steering the school toward instructional improvement.
“Mr. Furrer worked collaboratively with staff, parents and students to transform Hamilton into a competitive high quality, comprehensive high school,” Cooke said. “The focus on improvement and priority he placed on building relationships with students is unmatched.”
Furrer was named Hamilton principal in 1993 after serving as associate principal for two years. He was the coordinator and director of an alternative school in the Oconomowoc School District for 16 years before joining the district. He started his educational career as a speech and mass media teacher at Oconomowoc High School. He earned his bachelor’s from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point and his master’s degree from UW-Madison.
The position for a new high school principal will be posted. The School Board is expected to fill the position this spring.
