Muscogee County School District Superintendent David Lewis is asking the school board to approve Keith Seifert as chief academic officer in the division of teaching & learning.
The board is expected to vote on the recommendation at a meeting Monday at 6 p.m. in the Muscogee County Public Education Center on Macon Road.
Seifert would replace Veronica "Ronie" Collins who left the position to become the high school principal of St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School.
There will be a special recognition for Collins, as well as retired chief financial officer Sharon Adams, at the meeting.
Seifert currently serves as executive director of K-12 curriculum in the division of teaching and learning.
He began his career with the MCSD as a teacher in 1991. From July 1999 to July 2005 he served as principal at Hardaway High School and then served as director of secondary education.
In other business:
The board is expected to vote on the renewal of a contract with Chick-fil-A for handling the concessions at Kinnett Stadium for the 2016 fiscal year.
In the contract Chick-fil-A agrees to pay the MCSD 15 percent of the gross sales from concession receipts. The funds received support district-wide athletic facilities, equipment and activities.
The board is expected to vote on awarding a contract to Davis Broadcasting for coverage of high school football games. Davis Broadcasting has carried MCSD football for 24 years.
The approval of the Learn to Swim pilot program is on the agenda.
It is a two-week program for children in kindergarten that will occur during the school day at no cost to parents or to the school district.
The classes will be held at the Columbus Aquatic Center on Macon Road for students at Rigdon Road Elementary, St. Marys Road Magnet Academy and Wynnton Arts Academy.
