The Monroe County Community School Corp. board has scheduled not one, not two, but three closed executive sessions next week:
— Monday at 9 a.m. for new board members to be trained in their role as public officials by a trainer from the Indiana School Boards Association.
— Tuesday at 5 p.m. to receive information about or interview candidates for employment.
— Wednesday at 5 p.m. to consider a job performance evaluation of an employee.
The board will also have a work session at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the MCCSC Administration Building to discuss the process for selecting a superintendent to succeed J.T. Coopman, who is retiring at the end of this year. Work sessions are open to the public, but there’s typically no public comment.
At Tuesday’s executive session, the board will apparently “receive information about” options for temporary leadership until a superintendent is hired: i.e., whether to name an interim superintendent or to accept a proposal for an executive council of MCCSC administrators to take charge.
“There will be no vote (Tuesday) as it is illegal to vote in exec. meetings,” board president Jeannine Butler said by e-mail.
