School board to weigh extending upper administrators' contracts

Proposed extensions apply to chief business officer, assistant superintendents

The San Ramon Valley school board is set to consider Tuesday (May 6) whether to extend the contracts of four upper management employees through the 2015-16 school year.

The proposed extensions would apply to chief business officer Scott Anderson and assistant superintendents Gary Black, Jessica Romeo and Toni Taylor. The addendum to Black's contract also recommends increasing his annual salary by approximately $10,000 to $211,709, while no additional changes are proposed for the other three contracts.

The contract extensions are listed among several open-session items for Tuesday evening's meeting, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside the boardrooms at 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.

In other business, the school board will discuss approving a declaration of need for fully qualified educators -- a formal move required to ensure the school district will be able to staff all classrooms with appropriately credentialed teachers next school year, according to district staff.

Board members will review proposed revisions to the board policy and administrative regulation covering drug- and alcohol-testing for employees subject to commercial driver's license requirements. The changes are set for discussion only on Tuesday, with final consideration expected May 20.

The board will receive a presentation on culturally responsive teaching and learning. Members will also consider resolutions in support of May 14 as Day of the Teacher and May 18-24 as Classified School Employee Week.
