FMCSD, HTC talking again

Statement issued Thursday says boards are working on new agreement


FORT MADISON – After Monday’s 4-3 vote to allow all current shared athletic agreements to expire with Holy Trinity Catholic and Central Lee school systems, fresh conversations between the schools have apparently begun.

According to a statement issued by Fort Madison Community School District Board president Josh Wykert and Holy Trinity Catholic Board President Ryan Kruse, the two systems have initiated talks to reach a new agreement.

Here is the statement issued Thursday night in its entirety:

“Following Monday night's FMCSD’s Board vote to allow shared athletic agreements to expire, FMCSD board leadership reached out to HTC board leadership to start a conversation to discuss a new joint sharing agreement. Discussions are ongoing and both schools are working together to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.”

Wykert also said talks are under way with Central Lee regarding the shared wrestling program.

The future of the shared swimming program with Burlington is still in question after a statement issued April 11th said the Fort Madison board had decided to let all shared athletic programs expire at the end of the athletic calendar for this year.

All shared agreements have to be submitted to the state by April 30 according to FMCSD officials.
