The board will also hold three separate closed sessions.

RUMFORD – The SAD 43 board will hold two student disciplinary hearings as well as get an update on the superintendent search, all in closed sessions, when it meets on Monday.

Other issues, ranging from action on a proposed school calendar and tobacco-related policies, to hearing a report on the district’s alternative education program, will be taken up during the public session.

The regular twice-monthly meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the library of Mountain Valley High School.

Board Chairwoman Betty Barrett said two separate, closed sessions will be held for two high school boys. She declined to provide any further details on the alleged infractions. The closed sessions may be held early in the meeting.

Following the public session, the board will then enter into a third closed session to hear an update from Superintendent Search Committee Chairman David McKivergan on the status of finding a replacement for Superintendent Danny Michaud, who is leaving his post at the end of June. Four semifinalists for the lead administrative position were interviewed during the past two weeks.

William Davis and Roxanne Lee from the University of Maine will present a report on the district’s alternative education program. Nearly 20 high school students take part.

The board will act on two policies on tobacco use that outline penalties and administrative procedures.

They will also hear a report on a possible change in the way payments to school crossing guards are made, act on the 2003-2004 school calendar, and learn about a plan to purchase a school bus.

The board is expected to wrap up its 2003-2004 budget development work on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the high school library.
