New school trustees to be impaneled Tuesday

Board to choose new chair and vice chair

Express Staff Writer

Two new trustees will take their seats at the table when the Blaine County School District board of trustees convenes Tuesday evening.

Oaths of office are scheduled as a first order of business for new Trustees Shawn Bennion, representing the south Bellevue and Carey area Zone 1, and Don Nurge, representing the east Ketchum and Sun Valley area Zone 5.

Bennion will replace Trustee Daniel Parke, who has served two years as vice chair, while Nurge will replace Trustee Julie Dahlgren, who has served as board chair the past two years. Neither Parke nor Dahlgren ran for re-election.

Once impaneled, Bennion and Nurge will get to vote on a new chair and vice chair for the school board.

In other business, the board will consider reappointments of district Business Manager Mike Chatterton, Clerk of the Board Laurie Kaufman, School District attorney Adam King and Director of Student Services Debi Gutknect.

The board will also consider approval of regular board meeting dates for fiscal 2012, adoption of a code of ethics for school board members and designation of locations for posting public notices.

McKinstry representatives Jason Hynes and Tom Phillips will provide an update to the board on geothermal resource development, and heating, ventilating and air conditioning retrofits at several district schools.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the district office at 118 W. Bullion St. in Hailey. The complete agenda is available on the district website,
