The Pleasanton school board Thursday unanimously approved the appointment of a new vice-principal to serve both for Harvest Park and Pleasanton middle schools.
The action was taken in a closed session of a special board meeting Thursday morning.
The newly-hired vice principal, Kelly Wylie, comes from the Alum Rock Union Elementary School District in San Jose where she has been the dean of academic affairs at Fischer Middle School. Wylie has also held roles as a teacher, coordinator of Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), a coach and instructional development facilitator.
Although Wylie goes on the Pleasanton school payroll July 1, she will not actually start her new job until school administrators return in August, according to Pleasanton schools superintendent Parvin Ahmadi.
Also during Thursday's closed session, three of the five-member school board found no merits to a complaint filed by an employee after an independent investigation was launched. The board approved the decision in a vote of 3-2, with trustees Valerie Arkin and Jamie Hintzke voting "no."
The complaint and the name of the employee filing it were not disclosed.
In other business, the board unanimously approved the Association of Pleasanton Teachers' salary schedule for the fiscal year 2014-15.
According to the agreement, the 2013-14 salary schedule for APT has increased by 2%, effective July 1.
The next school board meeting will be on Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. in the district boardroom, 4665 Bernal Avenue.
