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.

To access: Go to the School Dis­trict Home Page, click the About tab, next to Home. Scroll down to Our School Board, click. Again, scroll down to School Board Agen­das and click. Then click on the high­light­ed Board Docs link, cen­ter screen. Once you are there, click on enter pub­lic site. Move over to the meet­ings tab on the top right. Click on the meet­ing you want to see – in this case May 16. Go down to Spe­cial Top­ics and click on the page icon next to Spe­cial Ed update and there are your pre­sen­ta­tion pieces to view!

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 The freeze was rescinded.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.
