Administration lean for schools

In response to Mary Ann Frank’s letter (Reader Input, Nov. 8), as a board member of the Auburn Union School District, I have examined the district’s operations from many perspectives. It is my opinion that the district is very lean in terms of the number of administrators. At school sites, the district currently has a principal at each school plus a vice principal at the middle school. At the district office, there is a superintendent, a business manager/assistant superintendent, a special education supervisor, a maintenance and operations supervisor and a food services supervisor. Every one of these administrative positions is essential to managing a district with more than 2,100 students, 190 full-time equivalent employees and four school sites. Teachers are the biggest employee group by far. The district is not top-heavy with administrators. Ken Nittler, Auburn
