School board hires three vice principals, extends deadline for Strategic Planning Committee nominees

The Davis school board filled several more part-time administrative posts on Thursday evening, and heard a staff report on the first few days of the new school year.

Kenneth Durham will be  a split site administrator — he was hired as half-time vice principal at Emerson Junior High, and half-time manager of student services (working at the district office). Durham, a Davis High graduate, recently served as vice principal at Inderkum High School in the Natomas Unified School District (Sacramento County), where he was involved with the athletic program. He was also honored in 2011 by the Twin Rivers school district (Sacramento County) as “teacher of the year” at the high school/middle school level. Durham has also taught in the Washington Unified school district in West Sacramento.

Teresa Delgadillo was hired as a vice principal at DHS (60 percent of full-time) and will also teach at DHS (40 percent of full-time). Delgadillo served a portion of this summer as the principal of the Davis school district’s secondary summer school program (for junior high and high school students). She previously taught English Language Development at Holmes Junior High.

Karrie Hernandez was hired as the half-time principal at the Davis School for Independent Study. She also will be a half-time teacher at Marguerite Montgomery Elementary.

Elsewhere on Thursday’s agenda, Superintendent Winfred Roberson said he is extending the application period for people interested in serving on the school district’s new Strategic Planning Committee (and its related “action teams”) through Thursday, Sept. 12. Roberson said that an encouraging number of nomination forms had been turned in on Thursday — the original deadline — but several other people had called and asked for a bit more time. Roberson noted that the new school year began on Aug. 28, and some parents and community members did not return from vacation until that date, giving them barely a week to respond by the original Sept. 5 nomination deadline.

Roberson and several other administrators gave an update on the start of the new school year, which Roberson described as “one of our smoothest openings in a while.” Among the upgrades around the district during the summer: a new intercom/alarm system at Birch Lane Elementary (a campus that will be holding a 50th anniversary celebration in November); new wireless computer access (with guest privileges available for visitors) in school libraries and other selected locations around the district; tree-trimming; plus fresh paint and new carpet in a number of locations.

During the public comment period, Patricia Price of the advocacy group Davis Bicycles! expressed concern about bicycle access and auto traffic impacts relating to the proposed Cannery project, which would involve 547 residential units plus some retail space on the 100-acre site north of East Covell Blvd. near J St. (formerly occupied by the Hunt-Wesson tomato processing plant). Price did not object to housing being built on the property, but she said that none of the options currently being considered “provide good connections” for bicyclists, and worried that the “(auto) traffic coming out and heading to schools (on Covell) will cause degradation of air quality” as well as road congestion. Price urged the school board to “work with city government to try to solve these issues.”
