The board voted to accept the resignation of Superintendent Brian White with and end date of August 31, 2017. School Board President Mr. Tony Mazzarini thanked Dr. White for his tireless work ethic during his seven years of service to the district, saying, “We can’t thank him enough for his vision and the work he performed during his tenure. He leaves us in position to be able to take the district to next level.”
The Board voted to appoint Assistant Superintendent Mr. Scott Seltzer as Interim Superintendent. Mr. Seltzer said he was flattered and humbled to follow in Dr. White's footsteps in service to the Charters Valley community.
Director Mr. Jeff Choura commended Director Mrs. Julie Murphy on the work she has completed in compiling an intensive check list regarding the search for a new superintendent.
Discussion on the proposed Board Secretary position was tabled to a later date so that the directors could further explore all the options and responsibilities relative to the position.
Mr. Jason Day of general contractor PJ Dick said that the building subcontractors were “coming down to the wire on Middle School construction.” The elevator passed inspection on August 8th, allowing district personnel to begin moving furniture to the third floor while finishing work continues on the first two floors. “We’re down to painting and installing ceilings,” Mr. Day said. Bathrooms are being installed and completed. Flooring and carpet are ongoing. Chiller and roof-top HVAC installations are completed and the fire alarm and sprinkler system is in testing phase."
In response to Mr. Mazzarini’s question that the school would be ready for population on September 5th, Mr. Day responded that he saw no major indication that school will not be ready for the scheduled start of classes.
Mr. Day also stated that punch list work has begun in the High School Tech Ed wing and district personnel began moving furniture and equipment into the new space on August 1st.
