Wayne BOE to have interviews
WAYNE -- The Wayne County Board of Education will meet three times this week to take care of regular business and move forward in its search for a new superintendent.
The board's regular meeting will take place at the normal time, 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, at the Wayne County Schools central office.
The other two meetings will take place Monday and Wednesday, respectively, and the board will use Monday's meeting to interview candidates for the Wayne County Schools Superintendent position.
The board will interview the five candidates during an executive session that starts at 4:30 p.m. at the central office.
The board selected the five candidates during a meeting last Monday.
The remaining candidates for the job are Barbara E. Brady, Loren S. Perry, Sandra F. Pertee, Ryan S. Saxe and John B. Waugaman Jr.
During Tuesday's regular meeting, members of the public will have the opportunity to comment on the hiring process and what characteristics they are looking for in a new superintendent.
During the meeting, members of the public will not be permitted to use names or to make reference to particular candidates. Anyone doing so will lose speaking privileges for violating the board's request, as such comments could also violate the privacy rights of the interviewees.
Those interested in speaking are encouraged to arrive before the meeting starts to sign in. Speakers will have up to three minutes to address the board.
Brady currently is the school counseling coordinator in the Office of Instruction in the West Virginia Department of Education.
Perry is the director of service personnel in Wayne County Schools. Perry made the short list during the county superintendent search in early 2013 that ended with the board approving current Superintendent Lynn Hurt for the position.
Pertee is the director of Career and Technical Education for Wayne County Schools.
Saxe is the coordinator of the Office of School Federal Programs and School Improvement at the West Virginia Department of Education.
Waugaman is the director of middle schools and assessment for Wayne County Schools.
During Tuesday's meeting, the board also will go into executive session to meet with Dave Ferguson of ZMM Inc., the architectural firm designing the new Ceredo-Kenova Elementary and Crum P-K8 schools as well as the renovation plan at Wayne High School.
The board also will consider whether to hire Pat Fluty as clerk of the works for the Crum Pre-K8 school construction project to be paid at a rate of $28.85 per hour while he works on the project.
In other business, the board also will consider whether to renew a contract with Bill Rosenberger to provide public relation services, media relations and communications to the public from the school district.
The contract calls for Rosenberger to be paid at a rate of $31.25 per hour.
If approved, Rosenberger's new contract would go into effect on Oct. 1 and last until July 31, 2015.
On Wednesday, the board will participate in a RESA II regional board meeting at St. Mary's Conference Center with other county boards in RESA II's area.
