Carson City school board talks superintendent hiring process


The Carson City School District Board of Trustees will hold a workshop at 6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the process and proposed schedule for hiring a new superintendent to follow Superintendent Richard Stokes, who is scheduled to retire in June.
The board has begun reviewing its policies and language regarding the superintendent’s duties. At their Aug. 10 board meeting, the trustees suggested adding the interpretation and communication of the district’s strategic plan under assigned responsibilities. Stokes suggested that what was listed seemed sufficient without needing to go into greater detail to give the position flexibility in daily oversight.
The roundtable discussion among board members and staff is for discussion only. No action will be taken.
On the agenda for the regularly scheduled school board meeting following the workshop is a presentation demonstrating the differences between social workers and school guidance counselors by Carson High School social worker Alejandra Ayala and counselor Nikki Hendee.
Brittany Witter, teacher on special assignment and K-12 curriculum and assessment coordinator in humanities, will share the civics test results for the district’s class of 2021.
Fiscal Services Director Andrew Feuling will bring forth a 2021 school bond resolution, declaring the necessity of incurring bond indebtedness for the purpose of acquiring, building and maintaining school facilities and authorizing the issuance of general obligation school improvement bonds in the amount of $12 million. This item is for possible action.
The school board meeting takes place 7 p.m., also in the Robert Crowell Board Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
