LYONS — The Lyons Teachers Association hopes its members and concerned residents will speak out at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

LTA President Matt Barr said the group has become increasingly concerned with the leadership of Superintendent Denise Dzikowski. In a December vote, 86 percent of the teachers said they had no confidence in her, Barr said.

While the vote had no practical impact, Barr hopes another public airing of the situation will lead to change.

“Some of our primary concern is just the culture of the building,” Barr said. “We believe there are quite a few areas that can be improved upon. ... We just want to have our concerns heard. ... We think these are major issues for a vast majority of the teaching staff.”

While Barr hopes the group’s concerns will be addressed, he said it would not try to dictate how that happens. Whatever course the district takes, he hopes it’s done in a positive manner, through collaboration and communication, he said.

Tuesday’s board meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the high school library.
