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.
