Staff to Get New Titles - For a Month

At first glance, a list of prospective appointees to new administrative titles makes it look as if the school district is set to accomplish major changes. But a second glance shows that 25 of the recommendations are just for the month of July.

At the May 5 business meeting, the Board of Education took action to abolish 45 job titles and adopted 33 new ones. The agenda for Tuesday’s business meeting includes names for appointment to many of the new titles, but only from July 1 through 31.

Plaintalker picked up the agenda Saturday at the Plainfield Public Library and answers are not available over the weekend on why assignments were proposed just for one month.

One of the nominees happened to be in the library Saturday and expressed concern about the limited proposals.

In addition, while 14 principals are up for appointment at salaries ranging from $98,420 to $136,560, their assigned schools are “TBD” – to be determined.

The school board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday (June 17, 2008) in the Plainfield High School library.

The agenda includes numerous other job approvals, but there are no names listed for two new assistant superintendent posts that were approved May 5.

Agendas should be available Monday at the Plainfield Public Library for those interested in further details on the personnel recommendations. Reminder: There will be a special meeting on Monday, June 30 to discuss the contract of Dr. Steve Gallon III, who begins a four-year term as superintendent on July1. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Plainfield High School conference room.
