CAB Could Name New Super Soon
June 11, 2008 - The Charles A. Beard School Board's search for a new superintendent could end as early as Tuesday evening, when the board holds its regular monthly meeting.
The board has met privately four times since mid-May to interview a small number of applicants vying to become CAB's next top administrator. The two most recent meetings, held May 27 and 28 at the Ripley Township Community Center in Carthage, were follow-up interviews with two of the job candidates.
CAB has been without a full-time permanent superintendent since last July, when David McGuire resigned from the position after just one year on the job. Ray Pavy, a former administrator for New Castle Community Schools, has been a part-time interim superintendent for CAB since McGuire's departure, a service that costs CAB $525 a day.
The May 27 and 28 executive sessions were originally set to be held at Murray Marketplace Cedar Haus Restaurant in Shirley. However, the board changed the location from the Hancock County eatery to the site in Carthage after learning that state law prohibits the board from meeting outside the school district to conduct interviews.
Although the executive sessions were moved back within CAB's geographical boundaries, the school board still may not have fully complied with a statute that requires school boards to meet in a regular meeting place established by resolution. The CAB School Board's regular meeting place is at CAB's central office, 345 N. Adams St., Knightstown.
According to Julie Slavens, an attorney for the Indiana School Boards Association, school boards may change the location of their meetings where, for example, more space is needed to accommodate larger-than-expected crowds. However, she said she thought private executive sessions, where crowd size is not a factor, should be held at the board's regular meeting location, unless they immediately precede or follow a regular meeting properly held somewhere else.
Tuesday's school board meeting, which is open to the public, will be held at the board's regular meeting place at the central office. The meeting will start at 7:30 p.m.
