They’re expected to approve the hire of a new fourth grade teacher for the grade school. Heidi Cabral has been chosen for that position.

The school board will be asked to approve administrative contracts for the district’s two principals. That will be Heather Conn at the grade school, taking over for Teri Toland, who is retiring.  And Rick Dormer will return to the middle and high school.

They’ll also consider contracts for some exempt employees.

They’ll hear about a few resignations, including the technology support assistant, Caleb Caulum.

The board will be voting to approve the curriculum for fine arts and career and technical education.

The board will also be voting on an agreement for the district’s Support Personnel Negotiated Agreement for the years 2019-2022.
