Monday, May 5 — The Lassen Union High School District Board of Trustees will be holding a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Monday, May 5.
The board’s agenda includes a discussion regarding the process timeline and other items related to filling the superintendent position.
Answering a question from the paper about whether superintendent Roy Casey has resigned, board president Skip Jones said yes, but further explained Casey is not an employee of the district and can’t technically resign.
Casey owns EPI LLC., and contracts for superintendent services with the district according to Jones. Casey notified the board on April 28 he would be terminating services.
Since Casey is not an employee of the district, Jones said the board does not have to take action and will now have to figure out whether it wants to contract with a consultant, hire a new superintendent or go with an interim superintendent from the county office of education.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with public input held before the board goes into closed session.
Closed session items are possible litigation and negotiations between the high school and Susanville School District for the Credence High School property on Cottage Street.
