The Board made the announcement at its special board meeting May 17 and will approved her contract at its regular meeting May 18. School Board President Rebecca Loney stated Hall is the perfect fit for Granite Falls. “Linda has an extensive background in special education from teaching to ad- ministration. She has a great deal of cen- tral office experience from grant writing to budget development to staff training. We are certain Linda will carry the good work of the District forward and maintain our focus on student achievement.” Hall is the current Student Services Di- rector and Special Services Principal for the Clarkston School District (Clarkston, Wash.). She has a BA in Special Education and Elementary Education, Masters De- gree in Special Education Administration, andSuperintendent Certification. Hall’s excitement for student success was evident during her discussions with the Board, staff, and community. Her varied background will help maintain strong relationships with staff, parents, and community members, enhance the instrucu'onal program, and build a healthy fund balance for fiscal stability. “The Granite Falls School District has a wonderful School Board, excellent ad- ministration team, and an outstanding superintendent in Karen Koschak,” Hall stated. “I am very excited to get to work and build on Karen’s foundation. The District also has a rich history of awarding winning staff, students, and programs and w I am very happy to have the opportunity to ontributed Photo Linda II " work and live in the community.” Hall and her husband are already look- ing for a home and are anxious to become involved in the community. “We are looking forward to making Granite Falls our home," she said. Last February the Board made the deci- sion to conduct the new superintendent search without a consultant, which saved taxpayers thousands of dollars. Spokesperson Kathy Grant stated, “The Board spent several months recruiting po- tential candidates, reviewing applications, and conducting extensive background checks. It was a very involved and thor— ough process and the Board worked hard to make sure we had the right person for the job.” Hall will spend the next several weeks meeting with staff and reviewing pro- grams for a smooth transition. Grant added, “The Board is eager to welcome Linda into our District and I know Linda is looking forward to getting acquainted with the staff and community over the summer months.” service by the Lake Stevens Journa Dr. Julie turn and Dr. Doug Brajcich Ir.

This inforination is necessary for a silccessful prosecution of a violation against the driver of the vehicle. 1 . “Our state has been lucky in that no . children have been killed by motorists ignoring these stop signs,” Sen. Hobbs said. “The same cannot be said around the nation. This is a preventive measure. We shouldn’t wait until one of our kids is hurt before doing something about it.” Fines collected from those running stop signs will first go to paying for the installa— tion of the cameras. Additional funds will go toward improving the state’s school safety zones. ' mmzsxxmxxmnwrmmmme . GAMES PLUS i r i i
