New assistant position creates accountability, says Monticello superintendent

There aren’t many measurements where schools find satisfaction in being below average, but spending on administrative positions is one area where the Monticello district prides itself on being consistently below state and national averages.
Starting July 1, the district added another administrator to their lineup when they hired former Little Mountain Principal Joe Dockendorf for the new assistant superintendent job.
The new position adds to the district’s spending on administrative expenses, but Superintendent Jim Johnson said he is firm in his belief that the added administrator allows them to be more accountable to taxpayers and to the community.
Four months into Dockendorf’s new position, his list of responsibilities has taken off at a fast clip.
