The Galt Joint Union Elementary School District (GJUESD) Board held a special meeting on Sept. 13 to discuss both the job description and the salary schedule for its Chief Business Officer and approved both items.

The Director of Business Services/CBO position had been vacant since July and, after consulting with School Services of California to review the position title, the district decided that candidates for the position would need to have experience as a CBO or have similar experience.

The title was changed to CBO from Director of Business Services/Chief Business Official, and a few minor adjustments to the duties in which a new hire would develop goals and objectives for the business department, identify new and innovative business practices to provide effective and efficient services and provide direction for all business programs and departments were made.

The board approved adding 15 service days to the position, a hiring bonus of $5,000 and an increase in the CBO’s salary schedule between $15,000 and $19,251.
