Superintendent Search Timeline & Survey Released
Long time Superintendent of Schools, Jerry Keane, will be retiring at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Mr. Keane has served the district as superintendent since 2001. Click here to access Mr. Keane’s retirement letter.
As a result, the Board of Trustees will be conducting a process to hire a new superintendent. A timeline has been approved related to the many activities involved with hiring a new superintendent. Click here to view the timeline.
One of those activities is to survey staff, parents and community members regarding the characteristics and skills that the new superintendent should possess. Click this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FNWRYG8 to access the survey. The Board of Trustees asks that you take a few minutes to fill out the survey prior to September 26. The information gathered will help them as they work to find the best possible candidate.
At a special board meeting held on September 5, PFSD Board of Trustees approved an Emergency Levy for $615,000 to help defray the costs of an additional 144 students. The district continues to experience growth, as evidenced by the 2.5 percent enrollment increase this year. The one-time money will help pay for additional teachers, support staff, and supplies necessary to educate the new students; the money will also pay for bus. Even with the emergency levy, the district tax rate will be reduced from $2.08 per thousand last year to $2.074 for this year. Though the district qualified for $831,000, district leaders were committed to providing for the needs of the district without increasing taxes. Although growth was seen throughout the district, Post Falls High School and Post Falls Middle School enrolled the most new students. PFHS current enrollment is 1670.
