No more recruiting for Pasco
The School Board cut all general fund spending for recruiting trips to the Northeast months ago. Next week, the board will consider a recommendation to eliminate the recruitment supervisor position from its books.
"We're not going to have a large recruitment effort for the next few years," HR director Renee Sedlack told the Gradebook. "We really don't need a recruiter."
Terry Aunchman (above), who has done the job since 2005, will move into the career and technical education division to help manage the district's growing career academy program. A former business education teacher and high school assistant principal, Aunchman said he looks forward to the move, which will take effect immediately.
"There's a lot to be done, and it's a great fit for me," he said. "It seems to be a win-win situation for me and the district. It beats the breadline, that's for sure."
