Shook oversees curriculum and instruction and will be on Step 6 of the administrative salary schedule. Taylor oversees human resources and will be on Step 4 of the administrative salary schedule.
In other business, Superintendent Marc Malone introduced the new Oakdale Junior High School Vice Principal Jon Webb. Webb attended Oakdale schools and obtained his masters degree from CSU Stanislaus.
“We are very happy to have Jon with us. Very competitive interview process…,” Malone said.
Webb also addressed the board.
“I know the excellence here in this town and what’s expected,” Webb said. “I look forward to a great year and great experiences.”
Also in other business, Superintendent Malone provided some brief information to the board about his plans to form three separate councils to help advance the district’s goals. The Community Education Council will be made up of approximately 12 to 15 volunteers and will help develop the district’s operational plan and start the process for the 2011-2014 strategic plan. The Facilities Council will have a similar number of people serving and will evaluate the district’s sites, properties, and needs. Both of these councils are open to the public and more information can be obtained on the district’s website at A third council is the Superintendent’s Education Council made up of educators in the district across all grade levels. They will define what’s working in the classrooms, share the information and collaborate with other teachers.
Also in other business, the board recognized the retirement of Cloverland Custodian II Mabel McNaught. Trustee Mike House noted that she served as the classified employees union president and saved a boys life once by performing the Heimlich maneuver on him when he was choking. Trustee Rick Jones also commented on her service.
The next regular meeting of the OJUSD Board of Trustees will be at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 8 at the Oakdale City Council Chambers, 277 N. Second Ave.
