No more recruiting for Pasco



AunchmanWith money tight and applications plentiful for teaching vacancies, the Pasco school district has pulled the plug on its recruiting department.

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."
