Uintah School Board to Meet Over Superintendent Contract

The contract of Superintendent Mark Dockins is up for review once again by the Uintah School Board. While no details have been released, the board has conducted an investigation and is obtaining a legal opinion regarding Superintendent Dockins and his conduct. The approval of the contract and expenditures for the investigation and legal review are an action item on Wednesday's meeting agenda. The board is also set to consider the renewal of Dockins' employment contract which expires June 30
