Superintendent gets his actual title


Yes, the Grand Coulee Dam School District does have a superintendent!

A glitch when Paul Turner took over the superintendent position last August was fixed by the school board Monday night.

It was one of those things where someone forgot to cross a “t” which prevented Turner’s name from turning up in county records listed as superintendent.

Now it’s fixed and Turner, who had served as a vice principal, can now sign his title as “superintendent” without anyone having the license to challenge it.

In other action Monday night the board hired a new bus manager, Stephanie Anderson.

She takes over from Bill Kimble, who had resigned a few months ago.

Anderson said Tuesday that the bus department has applications from three drivers, all going through training. The department has been short of drivers and these new drivers will be available to take routes soon.

In other hires, Alissa Mansker will be Lake Roosevelt’s head softball coach, and Flint Bjorson will become assistant softball coach.

Other hires made Monday night were Cole Seaver as junior high assistant wrestling coach; Debbie Van Geystel, payroll clerk; and Chip Baer, transportation.

The board also accepted four resignations. Resigning were Jess Cavender, as Lake Roosevelt junior high assistant track coach; Sue Peppe, Special Education 1-on-1 paraprofessional; Ray Wells, elementary custodian; and Rebecca Hunt, Title VI paraprofessional at Lake Roosevelt junior high.

Average attendance during December was 722 students, or 714 full time student equivalents.
