More Job Title Changes Tuesday

Tuesday's school board meeting agenda includes abolishment of one more administrative job title and addition of five new ones, continuing the shifts that began earlier this month. The total abolishments now number 47 and there are 38 new titles.

The meeting is 7 p.m. in the Plainfield High School library.

The title of fiscal officer is slated to be abolished. Proposed new titles are director, Student Intervention and Family Support Services; vice principal, Student Athletics, Activities and Support Services; coordinator, Special Projects & District Affairs; coordinator, Student Health and Related Services; and Grants Administrator.

Plaintalker broke the story May 3 on the massive job title changes. Click here to see the story with the original list. At the May 5 board meeting, some further changes brought the tally to 46 titles to be abolished and 33 new ones to be created. Those whose titles were to be abolished had until May 12 to apply for new titles. Interviews were to have taken place last week, with most jobs expected to be filled internally.

The agenda for Tuesday (May 20, 2008) did not include any summary of hirings, so it remains to be seen who will be left after all the changes. Besides the shifts at the supervisory level, numerous teachers and other staff were slated to receive notices this month of non-renewal for the 2008-09 school year due to budget cuts.

This writer will not be able to attend the school board meeting, due to another obligation at the Plainfield Public Library. I'm hoping one of the regular board watchers will keep an eye out for any walk-in items pertaining to the job changes.
