Page 12 Vol JR ('_GMMI IIIITV 1 e, ra -Augusf 15, 2012 i Board From page 7 appointment. "I can exercise good judgment in the many situations where there needs to be a cost-benefit analysis because of the district's many needs and limited resources," Sharp said. The term ends next summer and is open to election in the spring. Other candidates for the position included Pamela Barbee, former board member John Fassler, Hopkins, Ann Proctor and City Councilor Jim Gourley. "There's one candidate that stood out a little more," said David VanDerlip, board member. "I think that is due to the uniqueness of his qualifications. That is Don Hopkins." Hopkins has served as both a superintendent and a board chairman, VanDerlip said. The others "don't have the breadth of experience Don can bring." Mike Reynolds, board member, said that "with Jan, you're getting a very recent seasoned person." "I don't think it's a discussion of qualification," said Chairman Jason Redick. "From the fact we're deadlocked, I think that's kind of clear," said Jenny Daniels, board member. In the deadlock, Chanz Keeney, VanDerlip and Kevin Burger voted for Hopkins. Reynolds, Daniels and Dale Keene voted for Sharp. Michael E. Adams was absent. In other business, the board: • Approved a 1-percent raise for Supt. Don Schrader. His salary will increase from $102,165 per year to $103,186.65. The board voted 6-0, with VanDerlip, Burger, Reynolds, Daniels, Keene and Sharp voting yes. Keeney said he had to leave prior to the vote. He said knew he which way the rest of the board was going to vote, so staying wouldn't change anything. Prior to leaving, Keeney said that "the money we have to deal with hasn't changed." Keeney didn't argue with whether Shrader deserved a raise. "We don't have the money. I can't look at giving anybody more money when we're in a deficit." "I do think we need to get this one up," Redick said. I don't think we're competitive in the market." • Accepted a $900 grant to be used in support of training for statewide assessments of students with disabilities. • Hired Gretchen Daugherty as swimming pool supervisor. • Approved memoranda of agreement with the Sweet Home Education Association to allow the use of teachers on special assignment for administrative functions at the junior high and high school, including athletic director duties and discipline. • Approved alternative school programs for 2012-13. • Approved the purchase of new math textbooks for kindergarten through fifth grade for $104,295.93. The district had budgeted $21,900 and will use $50,000 from a .technology line item to cover most of the cost. The remainder will be covered by spending less on other line items or by spending contingency funds. The curriculum is called "My Math" by McGraw-Hill. • Accepted the resignation of Jane Bubak, district nurse. Her husband has gone to work for Central Oregon Community College as a professor. • Hired Timothy Pinson as temporary high school resource room teacher. • Declared a 1989 Chevrolet Corsica, a handmade tractor and a handmade trailer as surplus. ..... :ii!i;:;;iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii;! ............ i:iiiiilEiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilii:L iiii!iii;iiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!ii! cΈ HAVE YOU MADE YOUR WILL?
