Superintendent to share transition plans

Board will hear McKay’s district observations



— Transforming the district’s central office and the future of athletic facilities are among observations the district’s new superintendent will share tonight.

Kevin McKay officially starts work July 1 as the district’s new superintendent. But, he has started the first of three transition phases.

McKay, 51, will share his observations about staff, as well as “wonderings” about several items.

They include communication among administrators, school boundaries and customer service.

McKay is Zillah’s school superintendent through the end of this month.

Sunnyside schools hired him in April to replace Rick Cole, who resigned in January after he was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol while operating a district vehicle.

Tonight he is providing his 52-day, Phase 1 transitional update.

McKay’s Phase 2 plans start tomorrow and ends July 1. It will focus on continuing observations of the district and interviews.

From July 1 through the start of the next school year, he is planning a third phase to focus on community partners.

Also tonight, the board will consider a $153,003 contract for welding revisions at the local YV-Tech campus.

The board meets at 6 p.m. in the Denny Blaine boardroom at 810 E. Custer Ave.
