District 49 Board of Education directors named Pedro Almeida the sole finalist for the vacant chief operations officer position Sept. 16 by a unanimous vote (5-0) at the conclusion of a special meeting. Prior to the vote, Almeida and two other finalists presented their vision for the operations department and responded to questions from board directors. “I was very impressed with the number of candidates we had,” said Kevin Butcher, board treasurer. “We had a very impressive short list. We had three very qualified, strong candidates and I’m grateful to everybody who participated in the process.”
District 49 is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our children and staff. We completed multiple projects this summer; where we hired a licensed asbestos removal contractor to remove some of the asbestos containing material from five of six schools. As we complete more projects in the future, we will continue to abate it until all of it has been removed. If you have any questions, please contact Tara Carey at 719.494.8934.
