Papa 4 _ Fehrua P6= 1998 uad Ci Herald BridgePort Public meeting scheduled to aid superintendent search Bridgeport School Board members have extended their regular meeting to tonight, Thursday, February 26, for the purpose of gathering public comments on the qualities desired in the new district superintendent. Current superintendent Robert Allen has announced his retirement from the position, effective July 1. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Bridgeport High School commons. Following the public session, board members will meet in executive session with Lloyd Olson of the Washington State School Directors Association. Olson is a consultant hired to help district officials in their search. Olson will be at the community meeting to talk with district patrons. Allen said Bridgeport school board members and officials want to know what qualities district patrons are looking for in a new superintendent. The information gathered at the meeting will be used in establishing a list of qualifications, which will be included in the job announcement. Applications will be accepted through about April 10. The new superintendent is expected to be hired in early May. REAL program con't from page 1 know anything," he said. "I didn't even know how to write a check before I took this class." What he has learned made him think he could run his own roofing business. Butler and Wick already had a going business before they signed up for the REAL class. Last summer they noted that Pateros had a lot of houses with fireplaces, but few people selling cut wood, Butler said. They did, however, learn "a bunch of stuff we didn't actually do in our business," stuff about promotion and customer service. For them it was a temporary occupation, he said; Butler plans to enter the military and Wick wants to be a mechanic. When asked what she had learned in class, Mary Beth Adamske made a noise that can't be spelled but indicates general frustration. Adamske and Zahn own a vending machine that dispenses candy and snacks; it sits in the high school commons The MS Walk scheduled in Wenatchee under a contract with the Pateros School District. They had the option to lease a machine and contract with a supplier, but they chose to buy their own machine and stock it themselves. They have been open since January 21. "I learned how to play the game," Adamske said. Pateros School Board members meticulously scrutinized their proposed contract, asked for more information and sent it back for revision. The process took, Adamske said, a very long time. The first lesson in opening a business tumedout to be patience,"waiting and waiting,"she said. Both of them said they were surprised by the work involved. "I thought a vending machine would be pretty easy. Throw in a little candy now and then and take the money," Zahn said. The vending machine, in fact, does a good business--so good it must be restocked every Brewster S00?,FbC,CI I:)O; O con't from page I procedure remains the same. If the state legislature votes to increase classified employee salaries during the duration of the contract, portions of the contract can be renegotiated. Kelly told board members thatbased on the current number of students, the district will have to hire another f'wst grade teacher and another third grade teacher for the 1998-99 school year. The number of teachers at the high school is expected to stay the same. District officials have applied for a special grant from the Federal CommunicationsCommission;schools can receive money to help reduce the costsoflongdistanceand iocaltelepbone service, the money also can be used to purchase some computer equipment, such as reuters that direct telecommunications traffic. The amount of relief the school receives is based on the number of kids receiving free and reduced meal prices. Brewster actually has more kids who qualify for free and reduced prices than have applied. Kelly urged the parents of those kids to apply. A program called "Through The Eyes Of A Child" will be held March 7 at the North Central Regional Library, 310 Douglas Street, Wenatchee, from 1 to 3 p.m.. Children and young adults ages 5-15 can draw a picture of someone they can relate to with MS and then write an essay to go with their picture. These pictures will be displayed at The MS Walk on March 14. Everyone who joins in this program goes home with a prize from McDonalds. Refreshments will he furnished.
