MONROEVILLE - The school board Monday unanimously approved the resignation of Amanda Kreps as head varsity cheerleader adviser. Board members unanimously approved Caroline Schnetzer in her place.

Board members voted without discussion, and Kreps did not attend the meeting. She could not be reached for comment.

Kreps' resignation letter, dated Oct. 29, was addressed to principal David Stubblebine and simply reads "Please accept this notice as my resignation as head cheerleading adviser."

Stubblebine said Kreps might not have had the support she was looking for as head varsity cheerleader adviser.

Kreps was at the center of controversy in August, as the result of an incident at a cheerleading camp attended by Monroeville High School students.

As a prank, counselors and older students told younger students there was a gunman on campus. Therefore, they should remain in a secure place until further notice. Those pulling the prank later revealed it to be just that.

Stubblebine had said Kreps exercised poor judgment in that she knew the prank was transpiring, yet she allowed it to continue.

Stubblebine wrote her a letter of reprimand, and Kreps apologized.

Schnetzer served as an assistant to Karen Reer in Monroeville last year. In addition, she also served as cheerleading adviser at St. Paul High School for several years.

Dear Rich Lady ...

This prank is nothing compared to others just a few years ago. Loon over reaction from loon parents. Normally jealousy or boredom is the root of this behavior.

Keep being loons, maybe the next advisor will be worse and you'll be begging for the silly hazing days of Kreps.

Just a thought ...

Wow...no wonder Monroeville can't beat St. Paul...maybe the advisor should help coach too?

Re: Monroeville...

First off, my children are new to this school district so I have no knowledge of past pranks. However, in this day and age with all the school shootings and killings, this advisor should have known better. Plain and simple. If there were worst pranks in the past then those culprits should have been fired as well. There is no discrimination on my part as far as my disgust towards this advisor. Keep trying to rationalize it if it makes you feel better.

And just another thought, if it were a student who pulled this at school they would have been EXPELLED and possibly ciminally charged. Over reacting? Maybe a little, but when it comes to my children's safety I would much rather over react than have their safety compromised.
