The Davis school district filled two remaining posts on Thursday night, as the Board of Education approved the hiring of a new director of instructional technology and a part-time vice principal at Davis High School.

Both hires were made as the district ramps up for the first day of classes for the new academic year on Wednesday, Aug. 27.

The new director of instructional technology is Marcia Bernard, who has served as a reading specialist and “coach on special assignment” for junior high reading programs in Davis since 2010, and was a district-appointed administrator on special assignment in 2011-12 working on curriculum and instruction topics.

Bernard also has been the principal at the Heron School, a K-8 campus in the Natomas school district, from August 2012 to the present. She also served at Willett Elementary in Davis as “teacher in charge,” covering whenever the principal was unavailable or off campus, from 2009 to 2012, and as acting principal at the Davis Children’s Center and at Montgomery Elementary for short periods in 2010-11.

Bernard also served in the Elk Grove school district as a reading specialist, instructional coach, classroom teacher and mentor teacher from 1991 to 2000, and received Elk Grove’s “First Year Teacher of the Year” award in 1990.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in organizational studies at UC Davis in 1989, teaching credentials through UCD and Sacramento State, and a master’s degree in language and literacy from Sacramento State in 2000.

Maria Lynch was hired as a part-time vice principal at Davis High School (60 percent of full-time). She has been an English teacher at Lee Middle School in Woodland since 2013 and prior to that was an assistant principal at Lindhurst High School in Marysville (Yuba County) in 2009-011., and vice principal at Will Rogers Middle School in the San Juan Unified School District (Sacramento County) in 2008-09.

She also was an English teacher at a junior high school and an adult school in Sacramento County between 2003 and 2008.

Lynch holds a bachelor’s degree in humanities and fine arts from Chico State (2002), and a master’s degree in English from National University (2013), in addition to credentials as a teacher and administrator.

Elsewhere on Thursday’s school board agenda, the board:

* Postponed action on formation of a districtwide curriculum and instruction committee. Trustee Alan Fernandes suggested waiting until parents and teachers have returned from summer break before forming the new committee, and Trustee Susan Lovenburg suggested there should be “a little more work” on the proposal.

School board president Gina Daleiden likewise asked administrators for a more concrete description of the scope of the proposed committee’s work — “what do they do, and what do they not do?”

* Approved, with virtually no comment, a resolution satisfying state requirements for the Davis school district’s use of funds in a state-funded Education Protection Account.

* Approved a contract extension for Superintendent Winfred Roberson, who is now under contract through 2017. Roberson will receive an annual salary of $181,560 plus a one-time lump-sum payment equal to 4 percent of his 2013-14 salary (amounting to $7,160).
