In a departure from the pattern of recent meetings, the Morongo Unified School District Board of Education dispatched its open session business in under 40 minutes. Reporter Dan Stork summarizes the action…
At its Tuesday meeting, the Morongo Unified School District Board of Education approved a one-year contract for Tom Baumgarten to serve as the District’s Interim Superintendent. (Noting the careful language in the contract about a performance evaluation this coming March, we asked Baumgarten if he was in the running for a permanent appointment. He replied that he wants to be considered.) The Board also approved a three-year contract as Assistant Superintendent for Business Services for Sharon Flores, starting August 14; Flores comes to Morongo Unified from a position with the Rialto school district. The employment contract for Assistant Superintendent Doug Weller was extended through June 2016. Other business transacted included: adoption of a Governance Handbook and an English Learners’ Master Plan; awarding a bid to move four portable buildings at Condor Elementary, at a cost of $297,000; adoption of one history and one geography textbooks, while holding another history book over for further review; and approval of policies on tobacco, food service, student wellness, and the Local Control and Accountability Plan.
