School board expects to hire new superintendent by mid-February

— After the final interviews, the board expects to offer the position to one of the three candidates during an executive session on Tuesday, Feb. 18.

Also at the meeting, the board:

—Discusses possible changes to the school calendar for the 2014-15 school year to avoid teacher work days occurring on Thursdays. The board has heard numerous complaints in recent months from parents that having a Thursday with no school and then a Friday with school is problematic for childcare issues and bad for students. No final decisions have been made yet, but the board is “taking all concerns in to consideration,” Vogl said.

—Discussed a request to add a second modified softball team to the athletics program. The request came from the varsity softball coach stating that a large influx of players in grades seven through nine and a simultaneous lack of ninth and 10th grade players to have a junior varsity team will create the need to make 14 or 15 cuts when players tryout for varsity. The creation of a second modified team would prevent that situation. The board did not vote on the request but “is not in favor of doing this at this time,” Vogl said.
