Board members Emily Larson and Jen Smith questioned why the HR Director's Full Time Equivalent (FTE) was at .8 instead of 1.0.  Interim Superintendent Tom Lee said the director had requested the .8 upon hire and it has never been a problem as the director was always available if needed. In the end, the board elected to extend the existing contract for the HR Director so they could discuss the FTE with incoming Superintendent Michael Rivard.

The meeting started with some back and forth on approving the contracts as a group or individually, all the contracts were approved on an individual basis.  Approving the contracts as a group or individually has been a dividing point among the board for several months.  All the contracts were approved unanimously.
