The Southeast Warren Board of Education met for a work session at 5:00 p.m. on October 16, 2003, in the technology center of the Junior/Senior High School building. The following board members were present: John Burrell, Jennifer Birchette, Ron Miller and Chris Hardy. Superintendent John Della Vedova and Board Secretary Julie Wilson were also in attendance.

The Board discussed the following possible sharing scenarios and administrative scenarios:

1. Full time superintendent for Southeast Warren – cost – salary $80,000, SS $6,120, IPERS $4,600, Health $8,554, Dental $784 = $100,058

2. Combination superintendent-elementary principal – possible savings of $54,000 based on the position being paid as above.

3. Combination superintendent-elementary counselor – Really no savings as it would be an added position, but $35,000 would come from At-Risk funds and not affect the general fund or a $25,000 savings for general fund based upon the above salary.

4. Shared superintendent with another district – approximate savings $45,000 based upon a salary of $90,000.

5. Shared elementary principal and superintendent – approximate savings $68,000.

6. Possible shared media personnel – approximate savings of $21,000.

7. Possible shared counselor for the elementary – approximate savings of $20,000.

8. Secondary principal – superintendent – possible savings of $54,000, but some help would be needed from the intermediate principal at least one half of the day as an associate principal.

The Southeast Warren Board of Education will meet with the Melcher-Dallas Board of Education on October 28th at 6:00 in Lacona to discuss possible sharing arrangements.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:00 p.m.
