Board to reorganize after election

As a result of Tuesday’s election, the Jefferson City Board of Education is scheduled to reorganize itself at its regular monthly meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at 315 E. Dunklin St.

Superintendent Brian Mitchell will serve as a temporary chairman to call for nominations for board president and vice president.

Once the new board member is presiding, he or she will call for an election of treasurer and secretary.

Prior to that reorganization, the current board will meet to conduct business on a few agenda items.

The board is slated to:

• Consider and adopt the 2013-14 School Calendar.

• Recognize Andrew Runzi, assistant principal at the high school, for earning his doctorate in education.

• Recognize Joy Sweeney for her work and contributions as board president.

• Hear a presentation from Melissa Randol and Larry Potterfield about the Baldrige program, a public-private partnership that works to improve the competitiveness and performance of U.S. organizations.

After adjourning, the board will reconvene to discuss new business.

The newly organized board is expected to elect two delegates and one alternate to the Missouri School Boards Association.

The board also is slated to consider and adopt bank certifications to change and authorize the signatures of the newly elected board president, vice president and treasurer on the various district accounts held at Hawthorn Bank and Central Bank.

In other business, the board also could suspend its regular open session in order to enter into executive, or closed, session to talk about personnel issues.
