The Ketchikan School Board is meeting in special session Wednesday to make up for the meeting it was supposed to have last week.
An advertising error meant the regular meeting of Aug. 22nd could not take place, other than a brief time for public comment.
Items on Wednesday’s agenda are for the most part votes that had to be delayed from last week. They include a motion to hire Anchorage attorney John Sedor (SEE-door) to advise the Ketchikan School District during ongoing teacher contract negotiations.
The contract with Sedor would authorize spending up to $75,000. He would work on behalf of the district during planned arbitration, which was scheduled after both negotiating teams declared an impasse in late May.
An executive session for the board to discuss teacher contract negotiations also is on the agenda. Newly added to the night’s business is a second executive session to discuss a mid-year evaluation of Superintendent Robert Boyle.
The board also will vote to accept the resignation of Board President Trevor Shaw, and to declare a vacancy. Shaw announced his resignation late Friday.
The board will have 30 days to appoint someone to fill that vacancy.
Wednesday’s special meeting starts at 6 p.m. in borough assembly chambers at the White Cliff Building. Public comment will be heard at the start and end of the meeting.
