Maurene Stanton, Executive Director of Human Resources, announced that there were about 30 different certificated employees hired to start the year. There were many adjustments made prior to the first day of school due to confirmed enrollment and late resignations.

Dr. Shumate added that in addition to the regular duties of the district administrators, the supervision of schools was reorganized as follows:  Maurene Stanton would supervise the alternative schools, including Saratoga; Lloy Schaaf would supervise all elementary schools and the high school, and Dr. Shumate would supervise both middle schools.
