The Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) board of directors approved an agreement for assistance in selecting a superintendent July 19.
Education Leadership Services (ELS), based in Oakdale, has been retained to recruit, advertise, complete background checks, conduct surveys and host information forums for community input in regards to the superintendent search.
Executive Director Dr. Wendell Chun made a presentation at the July 19 PUSD special board meeting in Quincy.
Chun has tentatively scheduled informational meetings for individual, group and key stakeholders July 27 and 28.
Plans are to complete prescreening of applicants by the end of August. Interviews have tentatively been scheduled for final candidates for superintendent of schools Sept. 7 and 8.
In other matters, a contract for concrete repair work at Quincy Elementary School was awarded to Crete Craft Concrete, a subsidiary of locally owned White Cap Ready Mix of Portola, in the amount of $25,071.
There will be a 25 percent rate hike for regular PUSD bus pass holders. Students who qualify for free and reduced lunch also qualify for free and reduced bus transportation.
About 100 students will see their bus pass rates increase. Plumas County students still pay less than the state average, and PUSD will review bus rates annually, as per BP 3250, until rates match the state’s.
Bruce Williams, assistant superintendent, was appointed temporarily as secretary to the governing board, and will hold the position until the superintendent vacancy is filled.
