Board Meeting October 24, 2011

There is a special board meeting on Monday, October 24. The meeting will be in the high school cafeteria at, I believe, 6:30 pm. There are two items on the agenda - deciding whether to remain part of the WESD and the superintendent's search.

Tomorrow's meeting

I have been informed that tomorrow's School Board meeting actually starts at 5:30 with a presentation from an OSBA representative about the superintendent search process. I will be disappointed if the Board allows the OSBA to direct this process - they are the ones who found the last superintendent for us (and we know how that turned out!) and they were actively promoting him for other jobs (such as St. Helens) even after things had fallen apart here. It makes me wonder who the OSBA really represents in these searches, the superintendent candidates or the School Boards who hire them? I sincerely hope that our Board takes a very strong and active role and does not allow the OSBA to run the search for them.

School Board Meeting Tomorrow - October 3

Reminder - There is a School Board meeting tomorrow evening - October 3, 2011 at 6:30 p.m in the high school cafeteria. Over the next couple of months the Board will be determining the process for hiring the new superintendent. They have also been discussing new ways of evaluating the superintendent in hopes of averting the long festering problems we had to deal with last year. It is important that the community remain engaged in this process. Please attend if you can.
