2. Assistant Superintendent position
Mr. Anastasio said the reason this is on the agenda is because the current assistant superintendent has resigned and it was requested that we take a look at the position. Mr. Anastasio feels there is a need for an assistant superintendent and curriculum coordinator is a major component of that position. Many administrators spoke of the importance of having an assistant superintendent, the reasons why and they feel the position is invaluable. Committee member Holmes said she understands the position of assistant superintendent is extremely valuable but feels it would be better for potential applicants if it were pared down to two positions, i.e., assistant superintendent/personnel director or assistant superintendent/curriculum coordinator. A discussion followed. Motion by Christopher Clarke to approve the job description as written, second by Pia Holmes, so moved 3-0.
