School Board asked for two new central office positions

The King George School Board received a request last week for two new central office positions proposed to be added to the 2013-14 budget request by Superintendent Rob Benson.

The request was made at the School Board budget meeting on Jan. 30 when Benson also provided clarifications and corrections to his original budget request for next fiscal year, which begins on July 1.

The positions would add a Community Relations Specialist and a Grants Technician, with both positions reporting directly to Benson.

Benson distributed proposed position descriptions that indicated a salary range for each of $36,000 - $50,000. Additional costs for the positions would include the usual benefits for full-time positions, including those for health insurance, retirement and payroll taxes.

The positions are expected to be noted in a budget request presentation to the Board of Supervisors this week on Wednesday, Feb. 6, during a joint meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
