Nevada County Board of Education meeting today

The Nevada County Board of Education will hold a regular meeting at 2 p.m. today at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools office in Nevada City.

Regular county staff reports will be given on alternative education, educational services and business service. Superintendent of Schools Holly Hermansen will give an update on the Penn Valley Union School District superintendent search, which ended last week after the district’s board hired Bay Area administrator Angela Haick.

Hermansen will also address the issue of her expense report, which was a topic of discussion at the board’s last regular meeting when trustee Jack Meeks motioned to require Hermansen to provide a monthly written report that detailed all meetings she attends, including places, dates, names, times and topics of discussion. The motion was voted down on a 3-2 vote.

Board member Bob Altieri has placed a new motion on Wednesday’s meeting to readdress the review of Hermansen presenting the board with a monthly expense report. The board will also vote whether or not to approve a 4 percent salary increase for Hermansen that was approved for county staff in June.

Board members will give their own individual reports, and will also revisit the alleged fraud committed by a former Twin Ridges Home Study Charter School business manager.
