The Joint Technical Education District/Mountain Institute Governing Board recommended the hiring of current JTED Program Director Jeramy Plumb to take over as superintendent July 1 when Dr. Ray Polvani retires. The board officially approved the contract at its Jan. 24 meeting.

The board met in executive session Jan. 14 to interview Plumb, the sole internal candidate. Board members had the option of extending the search nationwide if they felt the need for additional candidates.

Polvani has served since 2009 as superintendent of Mountain Institute, which encompasses seven school districts in Yavapai County - Ash Fork, Bagdad, Chino Valley, Humboldt, Mayer, Prescott and Seligman.

Plumb has served as program director for MI since it opened in July 2009. He has an extensive background in CTE education, including agriculture education teacher at Casa Grande Union High School and CTE director/agriculture education teacher at Chino Valley High School.

He received an Arizona School Board Association Golden Bell Award for Outstanding 9-12 Grade Educational Program. He also contributed to the development of the award-winning 52-acre Cooper Agriculture Center in Chino Valley, and helped generate more than $5 million in grants for CTE education.

He earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education and a Master of Science in Agriculture Education from the University of Arizona, and a Master of Education in Education Leadership from Northern Arizona University. More recently, he earned a Superintendent Certification through the University of Phoenix.

The contract specifies an annual salary of $105,000, with $5,000 of that total representing performance pay. Additionally, the contract includes up to $5,000 for professional membership dues; professional conference fees; $600 per month vehicle allowance for district business use of personal vehicle; 20 days paid vacation; participation in the district's medical coverage plan; anon-accountable cell phone allowance of $150 per month, and paid holidays.

Plumb resides in Paulden with his wife, Shawna, and three children.

The next meeting of the JTED board takes place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, at the Mountain Institute JTED offices, 2970 Centerpointe East Drive, off Highway 89A, Prescott. Call 928-771-0791 for more information.
