School board reviewing position shifts

June 01, 1999

Shifts in the structure of the Washington County Board of Education's Central Office got initial approval Tuesday night.

The School Board is reviewing an organizational plan that moves some positions within the hierarchy. The plan shows where newly created positions, such as the director of technology, will stand.

It establishes the chain of command, according to Human Resources Director Phil Ray. "It will help the board operate more efficiently," he said.

The supervisor of staff development, supervisor of early childhood programs and coordinator of advanced programs are among the new positions included in the plan. The director of food and nutrition services, who is retiring, will be replaced by a supervisor, a position with a lower pay scale.

One of the largest changes involves moving the printing and publications division under the director of facilities management. The eight-person department formerly reported to Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Theresa Flak.

Flak said Tuesday the change will cause no problem. "The fact that (they) don't report directly to us doesn't impede our ability to communicate," Flak said.

The School Board approved the plan on first reading Tuesday. The plan will not become effective until it passes second reading, which is expected to be held June 15.
