School board continues work on super search


January 25, 2018

The Wahkiakum School District Board of Directors gathered for their January meeting on Monday to continue discussion about the superintendent search and other regular business.

The board decided to make a few more changes to the superintendent job description they had received from Melissa Kreuder, the human resources manager from Educational Service District 112. Kreuder was expected to be in attendance, but was ill. The board is still hoping for a break down of charges for the services that Kreuder is providing.

The board approved a supplemental contract for Janine Oman to be an after school Learning Assistance Program instructor. Oman will run a program for struggling students who are reading below their grade level. Eventually, the hope is that Oman will move out of the classroom and become a full time LAP coordinator.

There is currently only one candidate for her teaching position in the kindergarten/first grade classroom and the interview may be conducted on Friday.

According to Principal Stephanie Leitz, WHS was selected to send 25 high school juniors to see the musical Hamilton when it comes to Seattle in March. In order to attend, the students have to do a project based on the play and its history. Leitz asked that it might become an overnight trip to allow the students more time to visit some colleges in the Seattle area. The board gave their okay.

Leitz also shared that the drama club had participated in a high school one act festival in Longview. The play, written by the club’s advisor, Shawn Deal, won Best Overall Play, and Wahkiakum students Ryan McKay-Beach and David Thompson won Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. The play will be performed at WHS on February 3 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The board accepted a resignation from middle school football coach Brad Moon and scheduled a special meeting for 4:30 on February 15 to discuss board goals and priorities.

The meeting will be held in the library and will be open to the public.
