HOLTVILLE — After less than two years as superintendent of the Holtville Unified School District, Carlos Vega, 52, is expected to be leaving his job following tonight's special board meeting.
The meeting will be in the district office at 6 p.m. After the flag salute and public comments to the board, the trustees will go into executive session to discuss three agenda items: a) the separation agreement and general release of the superintendent, b) the appointment of an acting superintendent, and, c) discussion of negotiations with the district's two bargaining units.
Following the closed-session portion of the meeting, the board is slated to vote on the release of the superintendent and the appointment of an acting superintendent. No action is expected to take place in regard to salary negotiations.
County Superintendent of Schools John Anderson will give a presentation in regard to conducting a search for a new superintendent.
Vega was hired in July 1999 to replace Robert Duran, who left the district to go into a family business in Hatch, N.M. Vega had been the principal of Holtville High School for a year when he was named superintendent. He was given a two-year contract by the district as superintendent with an annual salary of $80,000. Since that time Vega's contract was extended to June 2002.
