Slavensky Named Superintendent of County Office of Education

Slavensky Named Superintendent of County Office of Education

At their meeting Wednesday night, the Amador County School District Board appointed School District Superintendent Amy Slavensky to the position of Superintendent of the County Office of Education, restoring the management of the county-wide school system to its original structure. With County Superintendent of Education Dick Glock resigning from position following an arranged, paid exit, the School Board returns to a system in which one person serves as both Superintendent of the School District and the County Office of Education. This arrangement has been in place since the consolidation of Amador County Unified in the mid-1980’s and is found in other California Counties that contain only a single school district. The positions had been split between two people since Glock was released by the board from the school district superintendent position in May of 2015 while keeping the county superintendent position. The split positions have resulted in legal battles over salary and governing authority. Some uncertainty remains as to how much Slavensky will make by taking the extra position. The board voted to pay only a nominal amount of one dollar a month, but intend to set a higher salary soon based on what counties with similar arrangements pay their superintendents.
