The Caldwell school board completed a do-over on its superintendent’s hire Monday — and stuck with its original pick.
During a 13-minute special meeting Monday night, trustees hired Shalene French, the Bonneville School District’s human resources director.
French was Caldwell’s choice on March 12; trustees offered her the job after nine hours of interviews in closed executive sessions.
But last week, in response to a complaint from Idaho Education News, trustees acknowledged a violation of state open meetings law. Trustees denied voting on French’s hire in closed session — a vote that would be illegal under state law. But trustees said their March 12 agenda should have been amended to reflect their plan to make a job offer.
Trustees did not discuss the open meetings violation during Monday’s meeting.
