School board reviews Christmas concert report behind closed doors

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A Wausau School District investigation into the controversy over Christmas concerts is compete. It was reviewed in closed session last night, and will be released to the public in the near future - perhaps as soon as today.

Wausau attorney Kevin Terry conducted the investigation. He presented his 18-page report yesterday. Its findings are not public yet. The school board went behind closed doors to "consider social or personal histories of specific persons" involved in the issue. One school board source tells WAOW-TV that discipline involving school staff was not discussed. Superintendent Kathleen Williams was ill last night, and did not attend the meeting.

The school board reversed an earlier decision to limit religious-themed music at holiday concerts and to cancel performances at elementary schools after community protests in October. Since then the Wausau West Master Singers group has been reinstated, and most elementary schools held their concerts before the holidays.

The school board says the findings of the investigation may be posted on their web site shortly.
