Tim Scott, principal of the Mason City Alternative School, has resigned after one year with the district. 

The school board accepted the resignation during its monthly meeting on Monday. 

Mason City School Superintendent Dan Versteeg said Scott did not give a reason for his resignation. 

Katie Fistler, a teacher at the alternative high school, will be the acting supervisor with support from other Mason City school administrators "until we figure out what we want to do," Versteeg said. 

Scott was the assistant principal of Oskaloosa High School before being hired in 2018 to lead Mason City’s alternative school.

Scott succeeded Dave Ciccetti, who retired last year after 40 years with the district.

Also on Monday, the school board received an update from Bergland & Cram Architects on the design work planning process for the auxiliary gym/swimming pool project. 

Members of the two planning committees -- one for the auxiliary gym and one for the pool -- have been identified and contacted about their first meeting, which will take place on Aug. 13. 

This will be a joint meeting at 6 p.m. at Mason City High School. It will be considered a school board work session, so the public is invited to attend. 

Each committee is to have student, parent, staff member and school board member representation, but membership has not been finalized. 

Board members Scott Warren and Jacob Schweitzer will sit on the swimming pool committee, while Brent Seaton and Alan Steckman will participate on the gym committee.
