NYM debates whether to keep a full-time superintendent [UPDATED]Published 9:31am Friday, November 30, 2012 Updated 11:33am Friday, November 30, 2012
The New York Mills School Board recently held a workshop to decide whether to keep the current administrative system or adopt a new one.
An opportunity for change will present itself when the current superintendent, Todd Cameron, retires this year.
The board looked at eight possible models. While nothing was decided, only three models are still under consideration. Most members are leaning toward keeping the current configuration of a full-time superintendent, a full-time high school principal, and a full-time elementary principal.
The other two models include two full-time principals and a part-time superintendent, or two full-time principals and a contracted superintendent through a service co-op.
While the current model is preferred, it is also the most expensive. Because of budget constraints and declining enrollment, it may not be feasible to keep the current model.
