the district.

Hanks is also serving as the acting junior high principal.

Trustee Roxanne Gourneau expressed her concern that Hanks is covering all those roles and that the high school is also short-staffed.

Trustee Bif Loucks asked, “You have 15 hats on. What is the structure?”

Loucks said that hopefully other educators step up and assist Hanks.

Gourneau said Hanks needs to be compensated for all three positions.

“This could go on for a long time,” Gourneau said.

Trustees approved to have the Montana School Board Association assist with the search for a new superintendent.

Board chair Lawrence Hamilton noted the school district might not have a superintendent for a couple of months or perhaps the entire school year.

Hamilton added that curriculum director Sarah Ruff served as interim superintendent for a time during the summer.

“Hopefully, she and Kim can work together,” Hamilton said.
