Union Hill school board to discuss supe search at meeting

The Union Hill School District board of trustees will hold a regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. today in the district’s board room located at 10879 Bartlett Drive in Grass Valley. At the meeting, the board will have a discussion with Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Holly Hermansen, about the district’s search for a new superintendent, after the announcement that current district superintendent Susan Barry will retire at the end of the school year.

Barry notified district staff in September that she will retire as superintendent by the end of June. At a board meeting last month, trustees discussed possibly hiring an outside agency to enlist help in finding qualified candidates to replace Barry, as well as looking to the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools for support in the search.

Action items on Tuesday’s agenda include approval of district warrants and expenditures in October in the amount of approximately $107,000, and approval of a contract with Gold Country Cab and Courier on rates and ongoing transportation services for the district. In a closed session the board will also hold a conference with labor negotiators and Barry.

For more information, call the district at 530-273-0647.
