DUNCAN — Several preparation steps for the upcoming school year will be taken during the Red River Technology Center’s Board of Education regular meeting Monday.

One agenda item will approve many title appointments to various employees.

These include Jennifer Balentine as minutes, encumbrance and board clerks, Edward Witty as treasurer, Terry Kent Brown as safety coordinator and Lisa Williams as adult education and literacy coordinator.

A vote will also be taken to approve or disapprove Lisa Williams and Brook Holding as night supervisors and Don Deal and Sam Porter as substitute night supervisors.

Board members will decide whether or not to approve using the Tulsa Model for teacher evaluations and the McRel Model for administrator evaluations for the FY’14 year.

Numerous handbooks will be discussed and decided upon. As there are several programs within RRTC, many of these have their own handbook along with the general student handbook.

Much of the training from RRTC is done in partnership with area organizations. This is to allow the students hands-on training that they cannot receive inside a classroom.

n A vote to approve or disapprove retirement compensation contracts, which is insurance reimbursement from age 62-65, with Mary Brown, Johnette Harper, Ken Layn, Marsha Morris and Marita Ann Wright.

n Recognition will be given to HOSA, Skills USA and BPA students who placed at the national level.

n Members will decide on approval of the Memorandum of Understanding to Provide Services for the Reach Coach initiative between the Oklahoma State Department of Education and RRTC.
