CKSD approves athletic coordinator position

The Central Kitsap School District school board agrees that administrator Julie Goldsmith is over burdened and help is on the way. During its regular meeting Wedensday night, the board approved filling the part-time, non-classified, temporary slot.

The position will be filled to alleviate some of the workload for Goldsmith, the district’s executive director of secondary teaching and learning. Goldsmith was hired in August.

The pay range for the part-time position is between $26,987 to $30,225, according to the job posting on the CKSD Web site, The position title is district athletic director, but the job description had the title of district athletic coordinator. The description states the job concludes on June 30, 2005, and is based on 990 hours.

During the meeting, Superinten-dent Greg Lynch said the position is not a new position, but rather an unfilled one. The district athletic director position was created during the 1991-92 school year as a full-time position. The position was paid for out of the general fund, according to district spokesperson Laurie Cizon.

From 1991-94, Lonnie Hunt served as the athletic director. His last recorded salary was $69,262, according to district information provided by Cizon. In 1994, the full-time position was eliminated when the school district failed to pass a levy. In 1999 to 2001, Ken Woolf held the position as a part-time employee and it “included other responsibilities,” Cizon said. The pay at that time was $46.35 an hour.

The application deadline is 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5.

Cizon stated that the school board is expecting a hiring recommendation at the Oct. 13 meeting.

“Our goal is to attract and consider all highly qualified candidates and to hire the most qualified candidate,” Cizon stated in an e-mail when asked if the district had someone in mind for the position.
