Dr. Murray voiced her disappointment to the Superintendent in regard to the continued hiring practice of administrators that had gone out on retirement. She requested the advertising of higher level personnel not be limited to a five day search, especially when it comes to the top level position of ESE and that it be addressed in the future.
Dr. Binggeli ask for clarification about the advertising for certain position. Dr. Murray stated that in top level positions, the district should not be doing the minimum and the advertising should be more far reaching.
Dr.Binggeli explain the hiring practice as it currently stands and mentioned the district will examine how deep we go down into the organization.
Dr. Murray stated to Dr. Binggeli that it is unexceptable for the Board to be told at the last minute of the hiring in such an important position as the Director of Exceptional Education. The Board on numerous occasions has requested not to receive last minute agenda items hours or minutes before a Board meeting.
Ms. Kneessy reiterated the same sentiments that Dr. Murray stated in regard to the importance of the input of all stakeholders in the hiring of the Ex-Ed. Director.
Dr. Binggeli mentioned in some of the positions that impact the entire district, we have had departmental leaders or associate superintendents create a team of cross-functional interviewers will come out with a person that they think is the best fit for that role and team person.
Dr. Binggeli explained the events leading up to why the Board was informed about the hiring of the Ex. Ed. Director minutes prior to the meeting and agreed that the Board should have been notified earlier.
Ms. Kneessy stated one of the reasons for hiring Dr. Binggeli as the Superintendent was to have a fresh set of eyes in the district. She stated we want to make sure that the district is not just prejudice to internal people when hiring. This is not a slam to any of the departments.
Mr. Ziegler stated that he will always support the Superintendent's recommendation as it relates to who he wishes to hire. He mentioned that he hope that the Board has faith in the district's succession planning. Mr. Ziegler also stated he wished to know about the intended person for a position so that he could give input on pros and cons in private and not in a public setting.
Mr. Jordan agreed with Dr. Murray position. He mentioned that we have to tweak the process and the Board has to comfortable as to where the district is heading whether is relates to hiring or being diligent with the budget.
Dr. Murray stated that she is very uncomfortable voting on a position in which she know nothing about the qualifications about the person being hired prior to the vote. She also mentioned that in the past two to three months, there has been bad information that has been given to the Board through Dr. Binggeli by his staff, that at the last minute better alternatives were found. It places the Board in an uncomfortable situation. Dr. Murray spoke of the relationship the between the Board and the Superintendent.
Dr. Binggeli stated that some of the changes in the budget the Board received was due to community input. He also explained his concern about others knowing information prior to the Board's knowledge. Dr. Binggeli made the decision to add the Directors position for this meeting because of learning that a department had been told. In hind sight, it should have waited for the next School Board meeting.
Mr. Jordan made a few closing remarks on all that was discussed and reiterated that we are all here to do our best for the students of Brevard.
Dr. Binggeli took this opportunity to congratulate the newly appointed administrators.
