Consultants Tim Haley and John Story of Pacific Consulting Group (PCG) were scheduled to submit their report on closing an El Tejon Unified School District campus at the Wednesday, Oct. 10 board meeting, just after we go to press this week.
Meanwhile, Terri Geivet, district director of fiscal services, has decided to retire as of December 14. She served for 34 years, since 1978. Her retirement was submitted to the trustees Wednesday.
Sam Brooks, coordinator of technology for the district, has resigned. He has worked with Supt. Katherine Kleier for one year to upgrade the district’s website which was in need of updating.
In interviews on Monday, Oct. 8 Tim Haley said PCG was “doing the final proofing of the report.” He was asked if there was information about what would occur if the district
wished to re-open a school after it was ‘mothballed.’
Questions were asked by the public during the consultants’ first visit on August 20 about whether an older campus would be required to undergo costly updates to meet the most recent code requirements if a school were opened after five to seven years.
Members of the public also asked if the complete report would be available for publication by The Mountain Enterprise, which agreed to publish the report if it was made available electronically.
John Story said the report will be submitted to the superintendent and the trustees, and that the decision about releasing it to the public will be under their jurisdiction. More specifics will be reported next week.
