Thursday, January 20, 2011

Aurelia native currently H-M-S Superintendent

AURELIA - The Boards of Education of the Aurelia and Alta School Districts met in an important joint session here on Tuesday evening to conclude the business of hiring a Superintendent to serve their shared districts.

Lynn Evans
The evening began in closed session with the last of four interviews conducted by the Boards and several focus groups. Continuing in closed session, the Board then met for several hours with consultants Les Douma and Rick Melmer to evaluate the candidates and select one to whom they would offer the position.

At the conclusion of a long session, the Boards offered the position to Lynn Evans, who has been serving as the Superintendent in the Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn District for several years. Douma contacted Evans by telephone, and Evans has accepted the position.

Evans, an Aurelia High School graduate, previously served the Aurelia and H-M-S Districts in a Shared Superintendent role during the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years, during which time the Board made the decison to enter into a whole grade sharing agreement with the Alta District.

Evans will receive a base salary of $125,000 in his new position, and he will also receive insurance and vacation benefits. He will begin serving in the new position on July 1, 2011.

The two districts will begin sharing classes this fall, with the Middle School to be housed in Aurelia and the High School in Alta. Both communities will have elementary classes.
