Base salaries for teachers, staff also increased
Ohio Hi-Point School Board members Wednesday at a regular meeting approved a pay raise for their district treasurer and hired four new teachers.
The board voted without objection to give treasurer Eric Adelsberger a 2 percent pay increase for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.
Mr. Adelsberger received an unblemished evaluation from the school board last month. His new salary is $86,7000. Last year, following a similarly strong evaluation, the board extended the treasurer’s contract through 2017.
The board also approved a 2 percent base pay raise for teachers and staff for the next two years.
Four new teachers were hired. They include: Brian Badenhop, science; Abbie Kennedy, intervention specialist; Laura McCabe, supply chain management; and Todd Skaggs, social studies.
Recent student successes were highlighted. Becca Crum and Kaylin Trout, recent culinary graduates placed first at the National FCCLA Championships in the chapter showcase display as featured recently in the Examiner, and Danielle Richmond, an Ohio Hi-Point Marysville health technology student, placed in the top 10 in personal care at the National HOSA Championships.
In other action, the board approved:
• donation of excess office and classroom furnishings to Riverside Local School District, Kenton City School District and Logan County Habitat for Humanity;
• disposal of three broken hospital beds to D&J Scrap Metal;
• Jeffrey Dysert, adult education career development; and Craig Hart, adult education financial aid coordinator;
• resignations of Amanda Mattox, intervention specialist, and Elizabeth Winer, science instructor, effective July 8;
• students and staff school insurance through Stolly Insurance Agency Inc. in Lima; and
• 2013-14 Satellite textbooks; Adult Education Financial Aid Policy and Procedure Manual; Stipends for CTSOs and OHP committees; and the school physician and dentist.
The next regular meeting is Aug. 28.
