    Assistant Superintendent Proposal

    T. Farmer proposed appointing John Marcus, current Director of Technology to the position of Assistant Superintendent. It was the consensus of the Committee that Mr. Marcus not have a generic title of Assistant Superintendent but more specific – i.e. Dr. Mosley’s title of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Administration. Mr. Farmer will come back to the Committee with a specific title for Mr. Marcus’ new role. Mr. Marcus’s Assistant Superintendent position will require him to attend School Committee meetings.

    T. Farmer will meet with the STA president to outline the administrative reconfiguration.

    At the April 6th meeting, T. Farmer will outline “next steps” for the roles of both Assistant Superintendents. The contract must be voted on in Open Session. The final 2016-2017 budget will reflect this change.

    There being no further business, E. Smith-Lee asked for a motion to adjourn.

    MOTION: (Salamons/Hitter) Moved to adjourn Executive Session. Yes vote: Hitter, Kaplan, Salomons, Smith-Lee

    Executive Session was adjourned at 10:43 p.m.

    Submitted on behalf of the School Committee by: Helen Campanario, Recording Secretary to the School Committee
