At the request of my Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources I am posting a job opening we have. If you are interested in applying for the position, please phone or fax him directly as listed below. --Cindy Dobrez "I am searching for the finest high school librarian/media specialist candidate in the midwest. We have a nationally recognized districtwide technology program available to our students and one of our two extremely capable librarians has retired. Working with a budget of $279,712 these individuals have brought our school district into an outstanding position regarding technology. Our school district and board members are committed to continue this direction in the future. West Ottawa Public Schools is a district of approximately 6,000 students and growing at roughly 150 students per year. Our board and community have committed themselves to a major $60 million technology upgrade to our ten buildings. We are fiber-optic connected. Voice, data and video are available to all buildings in an interactive mode. We utilize satellite TV systems with our cable TV channels in our community and are actively developing the internet connection. We have been recognized by the national level of school boards association for the technology in our district. "USA Today" featured us in their technology and learning coverage in their newspaper. We are located on the west side of Michigan on the Lake Michigan shoreline. We are bordered on the south by Lake Macatawa, and on the north by the Grand River and Muskegon Lake. We are an extremely strong community economically. Our unemployment rate is approximately 2-3% and the predictions for diversified growth in our community is astounding. Our community not only helps us in their financial support, but also volunteering their expertise in our committee structures. I am requesting you to please give consideration to those individuals, librarian/media specialists, who would consider this opportunity and challenge to carry this prime high school program into the 21st century.
