GCSC to host public hearing before hiring new superintendent

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Having identified its top choice for the corporationís next superintendent, the Greencastle School Board will host a public hearing regarding the next superintendentís contract at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 4.

The purpose of the public hearing is simply to accept any public objections to or support for a proposed superintendent contract.

The plan is to publicly announce and formally hire the new superintendent during a special public meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 11.

Both meetings will take place at GCSC Central Office, 1002 Mill Pond Lane, Greencastle.

For the May 4 public hearing, the board will take as many measures as possible to maintain social distancing standards. This will include having only three board members in attendance as well as asking commenters from the public to only enter the boardroom one at a time.

The new superintendent will replace Jeff Hubble, the GCSC superintendent since August 2016, who is set to retire on June 30. Hubble announced his retirement in January, at which point the board engaged with the Indiana School Board Association to conduct the search for the next superintendent.

Details of the superintendent contract will be printed among the legal advertisements of the Friday, April 24 Banner Graphic.

A copy of the full contract is available at http://www.greencastle.k12.in.us/g_c_s_c/school_board/notifications.

    Will a copy of the proposed contract be publicly available BEFORE the May 4th meeting?

    Otherwise, this is simply window dressing.

  • Will the board allow for online comments on the contract? With social distancing it would be appropriate for the board to allow comments to be made electronically.

  • Rockypenguin: Good question. Have you e-mailed your question to the President of the School Board and/or Supeintendent Hubble ?

    My question: Will the meeting be broadcast on the local Cable Channel 3 ?
