The Smith-Green School Board of Trustees hired a temporary Superintendent Monday night during a special meeting.
The Board hired Ralph Bailey as a replacement for Steve Darnell who resigned on June 29 to take a position with a school district in Southern Indiana. The Board accepted Darnell’s resignation Monday.
Bailey comes to Smith-Green actually for the second time as an interim. He worked for the school in 1999 filling in then as Superintendent.
Bailey started his career in the Columbia City school system as a teacher in 1951 and began as Superintendent in 1966 staying on with Columbia City until 1989. He began to work as an interim Superintendent in 1991, serving a number of school systems.
Bailey talked to the Board about his past experiences and his ideas about moving the district forward. He presented them with his procedures for communication protocol that he said was a very effective way of dealing with parents and teachers.
Bailey said that he likes the community and staff at Smith-Green and feels he can help out by encouraging working together.
“I’m very happy you chose me,” said Bailey. “I feel I can help make a difference.”
The motion to hire Bailey was made by Nick Uecker and seconded by Mike Sturgis. The vote was 4-0 with Rick Trump absent.
The Board made no reference to the procedure for finding a permanent head of the school corporation.
The Board also accepted a resignation from High School teacher Ben Jagger. Jagger accepted a position with Fort Wayne Community Schools.
The next regular scheduled Board meeting is on July 9 at 7 p.m. in the Administration Building.
