With no one else besides the two incumbents running for the two open seats on the Guffey Community Charter School’s board of directors, Frank Ruvo and Laura Owens have been automatically re-elected with no need for an actual election.
The school nurse position is still open since Nurse Betty McCain retired last year, said school Principal Martine Walker. This is an independent contractor position and requires less than forty hours per year. The nurse helps with student records and consulting.
The school is also looking for a teacher to replace middle school teacher Hillevi Peterson-Hirsch, who is retiring at the end of the school year.
The board acknowledged receipt of the administrator monitoring reports. The administrator compiles these reports without using a boilerplate; it is amazing that the administrator does these reports over and over, and it seems that there is always something new in them.
The eighth grade presentation will be in the morning, May 10. There is one graduating eighth grader, Sophia Guilliani.
Also, Walker noted that the community Easter egg hunt, sponsored by the Freshwater Bar and Grill, was a big success with hundreds of eggs hidden and two golden eggs with surprises inside. In fact, eggs are still being found around town.
In other matters, the board approved the agenda, the March meeting minutes and the consent agenda which included the next year’s school budget, and acknowledged receipt of the board self-monitoring reports.
The meeting adjourned at 5:45 p.m. All of the board documents are posted on the school’s website: www.guffeyschool.org.
Next month’s meeting is May 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the school, and will include an executive session to discuss the administrator contract.
