A meet and greet for those interested in potential school board representation will be part of the Salida school board’s work session at 4 p.m. today in the Kesner Building boardroom, 349 E. Ninth St.
District 5 representative Kyle Earhart recently relinquished his seat on the board, and anyone interested in filling that seat until the November election or in running for the seat in November will have an opportunity to meet current board members.
The board will also conduct a public hearing on the 2019-2020 budget, which will be available for inspection, and will discuss counseling expectations.
During its regular session at 6 p.m., board members will discuss drafting a resolution for election participation in the matter of addressing district growth with construction of a new building and proposed annexation with Colorado Mountain College.
The resolution is slated to be voted on at the board’s June 27 special meeting.
Guest reports will be presented by County Commissioner Keith Baker on the Chaffee County Comprehensive Plan, Bill Donovan on the communications plan strategy and Liz Sielatycki and Dibby Olson on Communities That Care.
Among the consent agenda items is the hire of three Teachers of Special Assignment (TOSA) deans, Cory Scheffel at Salida High School, Stephen Crane at Salida Middle School and Herman Lapp at Longfellow Elementary School.
The TOSA dean positions are new to the district and are intended to assist principals.
