With new responsibilities come new roles within the Sequim School District.
District staffers are in the process of hiring an assistant superintendent, a new job title for the Executive Director of Teaching and Learning position left vacant after Vince Riccobene was selected to take over as principal at Sequim Middle School earlier this year.
According to the job listing on the district website, the assistant superintendent’s responsibilities align closely with those held by the executive director position, including approving curriculum, developing plans for curriculum study and improvement, analyzing and interpreting results of student tests, leading administrative staff development, monitoring compliance of certain federal- and state-funded programs and more.
The assistant superintendent also would aid Sequim schools superintendent Kelly Shea in administering evaluations of building administrators as part of the Teacher and Principal Evaluation Project (Washington passed legislation requiring school districts to implement a new evaluation system for the 2013-2014 school year; in Sequim, it’s being phased in).
Annual salary for the assistant superintendent is $118,000.
The position offering closes May 29. Applicant screening is slated for May 30, with interviews scheduled for June 9.
The hired candidate would start July 1.
