    and creates new Executive Director positions
    Citing the "budget planning process for the 2018-2019 school year"  Agenda Item 14 G ( page 54) eliminates four part-time instructional assistant positions for a savings of $105,198.

    The April 10th Agenda's Certificated Personal Report (page 38) reports that as of July 1, 2018, Cathleen Corella the Administrative Director of K-12 Curriculum/GATE will have a new title of Executive Director of Curriculum/GATE/Student Support K-12.  Also on July 1st, Shoal "Christina" Lin, the Administrative Director of Technology Services will have the new title of Executive Director Technology Services.  The current Interim Administrative Director of Elementary Services Elena Rodriquez on July 1st will become the new Executive Director of Accountability/Special Programs/School Support.

    Agenda Item 14 H (page 55) reveals that the current state-wide educator shortage is impacting the district's ability to recruit another Executive Director, the position of Executive Director of Special Education/SELPA.  Employees at this level from outside of OUSD are able to currently transfer 10 years of qualifying experience to the OUSD pay scale.  Item 14 H would allow new employees at the "Executive Director level or higher"  to transfer 20 years of qualifying experience to the OUSD pay scale.
