Fayette school board 07.14.2010

Written by David Green.

Fayette’s board of education addressed several personnel issues at the regular monthly meeting July 12.

Sue Repp is leaving her position as food service supervisor, but she won’t be leaving the cafeteria. For the next school year Repp will join the staff as a cook and a replacement will be found for her administrative role.

The board rehired mathematics teacher Barbara Bruggeman, following her recent  retirement. She was offered a one-year contract based on a master’s degree pay scale.

Lisa Hintz was given a one-year contract at seven-eighths full-time equivalency to replace Pam Lash, who announced her retirement in May. Hintz will teach history and language, and might add some academic intervention work which she has done in the past.

Family leave was granted to first grade teacher Ruby Leininger from Aug. 23 to Oct. 1. Leo Wixom was approved as the volunteer weight room coordinator.

Board members approved a reduction in contractual days for principals Dan Feasel (from 225 to 220) and LuAnn Boyer (from 220 to 215). The reduced number of days will be taken at their discretion.

SERVICES—A memorandum of understanding with the Northwest Ohio Education Service Center was approved for the next school year for educational support and services.

DETENTION—A contract with the Northwest Ohio Juvenile Detention Training and Rehabilitation Center for the next school year. If a student is housed there, the district would pay $38 a day.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
