Superintendent/School Board Communique from the May 16th Special Board Meeting
The San Juan Island School District School Board meeting on May 16th may have been the shortest one this year! Special Education Director Theresa Jimenez provided an updated on this year’s Special Ed programming, successes and challenges. In addition, she presented examples of art and poetry crafted by the students. The presentation may be found on Board Docs under meetings.

It’s not nearly as complicated as this sounds!
The other two topics under discussion for the evening were the hiring freeze and the resignation of Ralph Hahn, former Board Chair.
The hiring freeze was always only temporary due to uncertainty about final funding numbers from the state. The freeze was rescinded.
Director Hahn’s resignation was accepted by the Board.
In other news, SJISD is now accepting applications to fill our vacant director spot. Applications are due by noon on June 6th. Applications will be reviewed on June 7th, and finalists will be interviewed Friday June 8th beginning at 5:00 pm.
