School Board To Discuss New Policy, Priorities

Tonight’s meeting of the Paulding County School Board will be held at Austin Middle School in Douglasville. Return to Dallas-Hiram Patch for coverage.

Paulding County School Board members tonight will discuss a policy dealing with the employment contract of a superintendent as well as consider a vote on the school system’s priorities for legislators in the coming year.

Board members during their 6:15 p.m. meeting, which will be held at Austin Middle School in Douglasville, will consider putting on the table for review Policy CEE dealing with the superintendent’s compensation and benefits. The policy would spell out that a superintendent would be entitled to family medical and hospitalization insurance; family dental insurance; long-term disability insurance; contributions to Social Security, Medicare and the Teacher's Retirement System of Georgia; and an automobile expense in lieu of reimbursement for actual miles traveled. No contract of employment with a superintendent, other than on an interim basis, would be able to omit any of those benefits without first amending Policy CEE.

The policy also would require a superintendent to reside in Paulding County at the time of the contract or within one year from the time of the contract. The superintendent would have to remain a Paulding resident throughout the term of his or her contract.

The proposed policy is attached to this article in PDF form.

The board also will consider approving the district’s slate of priorities for the upcoming 2013 legislative session. A draft copy of the district’s priority list is attached to this article.

Also on the agenda is a resolution certifying completion of the district’s newest school, P.B. Ritch Middle School. In order to receive the final reimbursement from the state, board members must certify that all accounts for labor, materials and services for the construction of the school—the district’s ninth middle school—have been paid in full and that no claims of any nature remain outstanding.

The board’s complete agenda is attached to this article.
