C. Fulton Board Makes Personnel Decisions

Transportation/ security guard returns to station
By Chanin Rotz-Mountz STAFF WRITER

Members of the Central Fulton School Board convened briefly last Tuesday evening to take a look at numerous personnel and transportation-related issues that were bought before the board and administration in hopes of establishing new daily rates, multiple leaves without pay and returning a former transportation and security guard to his post.

Randy L. Crouse and Walter E. Swope were unanimously appointed as volunteers to serve in the capacity of co-head coaches for the new junior high baseball program. In addition, second assistant track and field coach Jessica Fish was placed on step-one on the extracurricular salary scale, which equates to $1,660. Board member James Babinsack was unable to attend the February 10 meeting.

Pam Keefer, instructional aide, was granted a five-day leave without pay between March 2-6 for the purpose of extended travel. Meanwhile, cafeteria employee Ellen Wagner was given one additional day without pay on February 13 for travelling.

Karen Peters, elementary teacher, was granted leave without pay for extended travel March 27.

Unable to find another individual to assume the role, the district again agreed to employ James I. Smith of McConnellsburg in the capacity of transportation/ security guard. Smith was hired retroactive to August 29, 2007, for the part-time position, which he had previously resigned from in June 2008.

Curriculum

A list of 71 senior students tentatively slated to graduate in June was approved as presented to the board.

Joni Dunkle was granted authorization to take a total of five 11th-grade students to Shippensburg University on March 12 to participate in a math competition. The district will be responsible for covering transportation costs totalling $166.98.

Superintendent Dr. Julia Cigola gave a brief overview on training information through Shared Governance for Early Head Start. The materials shared by Cigola included the various components of the Shared Governance, including the Policy Council, Head Start staff and the governing body and how they oversee legal and fiscal responsibility as well as internal control and accountability.

Transportation

Bus route 014 contracted to Sandra L. Lynch saw an increase in the daily rate retroactive to November 10. The rate was adjusted in order to accommodate changes in the route resulting from bridge construction on Lincoln Way West.

Pending the receipt of FBI clearances, Emilie Decker and Laura Decker, both of Harrisonville, will be added to the district's substitute driver list. Having submitted all of the necessary clearances and paperwork, Cloyd Foor, also of Harrisonville, was added to the same list.
