City schools to hire PR help
Superintendent Debra Livingston, who is beginning her first school year as head of the district, told the school board on Monday that she's quickly realized the schools need a public liaison.
The committee revised the job to be a full-time, benefited position with a salary range of $30,000 to $32,000. The job would entail communicating with the public and parents, coordinating special events and preparing news releases, among other responsibilities. The board also voted to have the coordinator oversee the district's recently established policy allowing limited advertising on school campuses. Several board members were enthusiastic about the idea.
Two members of the Coordination Committee opposed hiring the spokesman, arguing that the district had more pressing staffing priorities.
Mayor Ted Gatsas replied that the recent audit of the district concluded that it didn't have enough people working in the administration office.
Gatsas supported creating the position and proposed having it be full-time at the salary of $30,000-$32,000.
It's not clear at this point where the money for the new position will come from.
Livingston did not return a call for comment late Tuesday. email@example.com
