Central Fulton Makes Personnel Decisions
Members of the Central Fulton School Board convened last Tuesday to touch on several personnel-related issues, including placing a trio of individuals on the professional substitute list and coming to a mutual agreement with a neighboring school district to share cafeteria services.
In a unanimous motion, the district agreed to share the services of its contracted food service manager with the Tuscarora School District during the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. According to reports, the decision made by the board on February 16 will save the district slightly more than $23,000 in costs.
In addition, the employee in charge of daily cafeteria operations at the school when the manager is at the Tuscarora School District will receive an additional $1 per hour starting in 2010-11.
In another motion, the food service contractor, Metz & Associates, was given permission to fill future vacancies within the cafeteria and find substitutes.
Needmore resident Amanda Schetrompf was added to the professional substitute list as was Cherina Strait of Harrisonville and McConnellsburg resident Misti Keebaugh. All three women have submitted the proper clearances to the district.
New board member Hollie Garlock was appointed to serve as the district’s liaison on the Fulton County Center for Families Board of Directors.
Varsity softball assistant coach Candace Bard was placed on the 2009-10 extracurricular activity list at an annual rate of $1,845. Assistant baseball coach Kenneth Welsh, junior high baseball coach Steven Truax and baseball assistant coach Randy Crouse were placed on the list as well but in the capacity of volunteers.
Tabetha Mellott from Mc- Connellsburg will be added to the substitute van driver list pending the receipt of all necessary clearances.
In other transportation matters, the board tabled entering into an “addendum to contracted services” for pupil transportation. The addendum would require contractors to submit invoices detailing gasoline or diesel utilized, with additional evidence that state tax was paid through the Liquid Fuels and Fuels Tax Act.
Greg Hays was given retroactive permission to take a total of 40 Varsity Club members to the Penn State Bryce Jordan Center on February 13. The trip was taken at no cost to the district.
Dual enrollment agreements as well as courses and committee memberships were approved for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years. During the current school year, the district has a total of 17 junior and senior high school students enrolled in two dual enrollment classes through Allegheny College of Maryland. In connection with their participation, the district will receive $10,068 in dual enrollment grant money to offset expenditures related to student tuition, books and fees.
