EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - The Eau Claire Police Department is investigating a threat made towards a member of the Eau Claire Area School District’s Board of Education Monday.

According to a release from the ECASD, the threat was emailed.

At the beginning of the ECASD’s Board meeting Monday night, Board President Dr. Tim Nordin said that a threat was emailed to him and was directed at him and his family.

The ECPD is investigating the threat and had three officers at Monday night’s meeting as a precaution. The release stated that because it is an ongoing investigation, no other information would be released. Nordin said he planned to make a formal statement “in the coming days” but was advised to wait until police conducted their investigation.

The school board meeting was streamed on the ECASD’s Board of Education website.

According to the agenda for the meeting, the Board of Education was set to approve wage increases of 4.7% for non-affiliated and hourly employees for the 2022-23 school year. The cost would be $1.677,831 and would fit into the school district’s budget.

The Board also considered contractor bids for replacing the Memorial High School parking lot and recognize Longfellow Elementary School for its Kindness Olympics.

Tim Nordin released a letter to the Eau Claire Community on the incident.
