Assistant Superintendant Sean Dusek accepted the position as interim superintendent for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District.
Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education made myriad appointments at Monday’s meeting.
The school board approved a contract appointing Dusek to the position, which will begin Dec.1 when Superintendent Steve Atwater’s resignation goes into affect.
Re-elected board members Joe Arness, Penny Vadla and Bill Holt were sworn in at the beginning of the meeting to make official the results of the Oct. 7 local elections. Following their return, the board chose their officers for the next year.
Joe Arness was unanimously re-elected as board president, and Sunni Hilts was elected to serve as vice president. Penny Valda was re-elected as board clerk and Dan Castimore will be taking the position of treasurer, previously held by Lynn Hohl who turned down the nomination for re-election.
During board comments each member took a moment to welcome Marie Kulikov, newly appointed student representative to the board, for her first meeting. Kulikov is a senior at Voznesenka School, where it is also her first year attending.
