HUSD to vote on new assignment for BMHS principal

PRESCOTT VALLEY – Based on low student enrollment at Bradshaw Mountain Middle School and Humboldt Elementary School, the Humboldt Unified School District is likely to approve a staffing proposal for the 2004-05 school year that reassigns BMMS Principal Brian Buchholtz to a shared (dual) principalship at both schools.

The assignment, according to Superintendent Henry Schmitt, depends on Buchholtz's qualifications and the needs of HUSD.

"While I would always desire to have a full-time principal at each school, the financial and educational benefits warrant this reassignment," Schmitt wrote in a recent letter to Buchholtz.

If the HUSD governing board approves Schmitt's recommendation at its meeting Tuesday, a teacher-on-assignment at Humboldt Elementary School would provide the daily administrative duties under the direct supervision of Buchholtz.

Also on the agenda for the governing board meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday:

• Draft staffing proposals for the 2004-05 school year;

• Adoption of a resolution to designate March as Youth Art Month;

• Discussion on the 2004-05 calendar committee;

• Discussion on the district's education foundation template;

• A vote on a request for horizontal movement on the nurse's salary schedule.

At its 6 p.m. work session on Tuesday, the governing board is to discuss areas for improvement on the board's self-evaluations.

The study session and regular board meetings will be at the Prescott Valley Magistrate Court, 7501 E. Civic Circle.

For information, call the district office at 759-4000.
