Board Action

A Message from Your Superintendent
March 16, 2018

Good morning. At last night’s School Board meeting, Board members voted to terminate next year’s contracts for our Fairview and Lions Park assistant principals, Una Durkan and Danielle Bielenda. This is an action that had to be taken in case the tax referendum does not pass next Tuesday. If the referendum does pass, the Board will vote on new contracts for Una and Danielle. This will happen when the other administrative contracts are approved this May.

The Board took this action at this time because the contracts will be automatically renewed if they are not acted upon by April 1. And last night’s Board meeting is the last one before the April 1 deadline. As you know, these assistant principal positions are on the list of cuts that will go into effect next school year if the referendum does not pass. Therefore, this vote had to be taken now, in order to be prepared for any outcome of the election.

In addition, the Board recently approved a staffing plan for next year that includes the staffing cuts that will be made if a referendum does not pass. If the referendum is successful, on April 19, we will submit a new staffing plan to the Board that mirrors the plan for this current school year (i.e. no cuts).

As you can see, this election is very important to our school district. The outcome will affect the staffing decisions outlined here, as well as other actions regarding staffing, programming, maintenance and student fees. I strongly encourage all District parents to vote. Polls are open for early voting at Village Hall today (9-7), tomorrow (9-5), Sunday (10-4) and Monday (9-5). Or you can vote at your regular polling place on Tuesday. Remember, it’s non-attendance day!
