Aurelia and Alta Districts discuss shared Superintendent

Friday, June 18, 2010

AURELIA - The Aurelia and Alta School Districts will hear a presentation from a consultant in July regarding the search planning for a shared Superintendent for the merging Districts beginning in the 2011-2012 school year.

As it is, current Superintendent Fred Maharry will continue at Alta, and the Aurelia District will search for an interim or shared Superintendent for the 2010-2011 school year.

During Monday night's shared Alta and Aurelia School Board meeting, and Aurelia's regularly scheduled meeting that followed, the Aurelia District approved ending the sharing agreement with Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn for HMS Superintendent Lynn Evans, who will remain at HMS.

In other business with both Boards, members discussed a school mascot for the shared Alta-Aurelia programs and looked at several samples before deciding on a shield and coat of arms mascot, with further details to be worked out in the future. The new A-A school colors of navy blue and red had already been decided at earlier meetings. The Boards also approved the proposed football uniforms and a general plan for future uniform purchases for all sports.

The Good Conduct Policy for both Districts was presented and the Boards approved a combination of those, pending further review by attorneys.

A vacancy on the Aurelia School Board after the resignation in May of Colby Entriken due to job-related developments, was filled by thge appointment of Mike Kruger of Aurelia. He will serve on the Board until the 2011 elections.

The Aurelia Board also approved a contract for Patricia Engelke to serve as drill team sponsor.

The Board also approved lunch prices and registration fees for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. They will remain the same as in this past school year.

The District's membership in the Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) was also approved.
