Administrative restructuring is being considered by the Keota School Board. At their November 16th meeting, the board will discuss the future of their superintendent sharing agreement with Mid-Prairie, and their three options for shuffling the administrative staff.

The first option has the district continue sharing a superintendent and employing a part time curriculum director, but consolidates the district’s two principal positions into one role that oversees preschool through 12th grade.

The second option, which would cost the district nearly $100,000 more than their current arrangement, creates a full time position to carry out the duties of superintendent and preschool through 6th grade principal, while the responsibilities of the activities director are handled by the 7th through 12th grade principal.

The third option has the superintendent and pre-k through 6th grade principal perform the duties of curriculum director, getting rid of the current part time position included in the first and second proposal.

If option two or three is chosen, Keota will lose a roughly $50,000 state incentive offered to districts that share a superintendent.
