The Dell Rapids School Board met in special session Tuesday afternoon. Board President Brian Davis says, following the executive session, a determination to address an employee grievance report was made. Building secretaries will now be working an 18 hour weekly schedule per their employment agreements and summer schedules will be worked out with their building principals, predetermined and consistent with all hours worked between 8am and 5pm. Also, when the district secretary is gone for planned absences, other secretaries will fill in on a rotating basis.
Other personnel items addressed included an amendment to Dr John Jewett’s contract to include only Technology Director and not Elementary Principal, plus the Superintendent can advertise for another elementary principal. The board also voted not to renew the contracts for Jeanette Penning and Melvin Penning.
