Riedel thanked those who had voted for her and expressed a strong interest in being involved in the selection of a new superintendent.

Current Superintendent Howard Fetz will retire at the end of the coming school year.

Riedel noted her conviction that the selection process should involve a diverse array of community and district staff members.

Riedel and 2012-13 School Board Chairman Mark Greene were nominated for vice chairman. Riedel was elected.

Greene was not at the meeting.

During the meeting, board member Sonja McCarty expressed her desire for clarification of the duties of district administrators who have been given new titles.

The designation and role of the district clerk will be discussed at the next board meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.

It was decided that in the coming year, Ralph Branson and Adamson will act as school board liaisons for Eagle Creek Elementary, McCarty and Riedel will be board liaisons for Clackamas River Elementary, Riedel will be the board liaison for the junior high school, and Greene and Mudrow will act as board liaisons for the high school.
