School board to meet in closed session to discuss coaches

By From page A4 | July 14, 2013

The Davis school board will hold a special meeting on Tuesday in closed session to discuss three items relating to athletics at Davis High School:

* “Public Employee Appointment: Volleyball Coach”

* “Public Employment: Football Coach”

* “Public Employee Performance Evaluation: (Davis High School) Athletic Director”

The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. in Conference Room 15 at the school district’s administrative offices at 526 B St.

As with all school board meetings, there will be a brief opportunity for public comment as the meeting begins, with a three-minute limit per individual speaker. The school board will then go into closed session (not open to the public) for an undetermined amount of time. An announcement of any board action will be made at the end of the closed session meeting.

The topic of athletic coaches at Davis High has heated up during the past two or three years, as several coaches at the high school have resigned, or not been offered a new contract (under a variable services agreement), or in at least one instance relieved of duty in mid-season. The topic has prompted considerable community discussion during recent months, in addition to several letters to the editor and news articles in The Enterprise.

School board president Sheila Allen told The Enterprise on Saturday that “information has come to light that warrants review by the school board.”

Closed session meetings of the school board are not recorded or broadcast.
