Central mulls over closing Low Moor bus stop

(Continued)

Also reviewed was the district and state ACT results. Principal George Pickup said he would present further information on these scores. In his administrative report, Pickup said a memorandum of agreement for dual courses with community colleges was in force. There are 300 students enrolled in the course.

The board approved a retirement incentive plan for teachers which is the same as last year’s requiring 55 years of age and five years of experience in the district. This is a cost-effective measure, Peterson said, that should be up for consideration every year.

Irwin said he did not want teachers to think it would be offered every year because it is not a cost-saving effort when the teacher is older 65. In that event, funding does not come from the management fund but from the general fund.

The board approved employment of Maria Cibula as .58 intermediate school music teacher at $19,797, Alyssa Maher as assistant varsity girls track coach at $2,553, and Japatra Person as Ekstrand teacher associate at $11.28 an hour. The resignation of associate Ann Peterson was accepted.

The contract of middle school band teacher Brittany Manning was increased to .75 time to meet demands of increased participation, and the contracts of intermediate teacher associates Tiffany Barr, Dawn Wright, Cheryl Brackey and Sharri Block were amended to meet increased time demands.

The resignation of Don Salyars as assistant varsity wrestling coach was accepted with regret and thanks for his dedication and time.

Music teacher Josh Greubel gave a report on the sixth grade summer band program and received approval for a New York band trip in the spring of 2015.
