CF Makes Personnel Appointments

By Chanin Rotz-Mountz

Central Fulton School Board met briefly last Tuesday evening, naming multiple individuals to serve in a variety of coaching positions for the spring sports season. Coaching positions for softball, baseball and track and field were filled as spring sports practices had gotten under way the prior week.

Those selected to serve as coaches and placed on the extracurricular activity scale for the 2011-12 school year were:

 John Heuston, varsity softball coach, $2,545

 Candace Bard, junior varsity softball coach, $1,845

 Denny Swope, junior high softball coach, $1,730

 Doug Seiders, volunteer softball assistant coach

 Tami Ulsh, volunteer junior high softball assistant coach

 Tim Fowler, varsity baseball coach, $2,545

 Robert Koontz, junior varsity baseball coach, $1,845

 Stephen Truax, junior high baseball coach, $1,730

 Kenneth Welsh, volunteer junior high baseball assistant coach

 Gary Miller, volunteer junior high baseball assistant coach

 Joni Dunkle, girls track coach, $2,545

 Josh Strait, boys track coach, $2,545

 Todd Grissinger, boys first assistant track coach, $1,895

 Bobby Snyder, volunteer track assistant coach.

Board member Roger Strait abstained during the roll-call vote on the matter.

Pamela Holtzman, of Chambersburg, was added to the district’s supportive aide substitute list.

In a follow-up motion, the board agreed to permit part-time employees to accumulate their unused paid time-off (PTO) days in the event they are not used. The board was informed by the administration that part-time employees currently receive three PTO days annually. No more than three consecutive days may be used without a doctor’s excuse.

The resignation of paraprofessional Susan M. Mellott was accepted as presented. The district is now slated to begin advertising to fill two paraprofessional positions.

In an extra motion brought to the board for consideration, it was decided to purchase one-half of the time of a Fulton County Area Vocational-Technical School (AVTS) computer networking repair instructor from the AVTS. The cost of the individual’s services for the 2012-13 school year is $20,587.45.

Following suit with the other two neighboring districts, Central Fulton is tentatively slated to begin school a bit earlier during the upcoming school year. The first day of school for students is scheduled for Monday, August 20. In-service for teachers will be the last several days of the annual Fulton County Fair.

The annual audit of the Fulton County Center for Families was reviewed and approved by the board. It was noted due to the district serving as a pass-through for funding and its connection with the Early Head Start program, the board is required to approve the document. The audit was given an “unqualified opinion” without any findings.

Under building and grounds, the board accepted an agreement from the American Red Cross to provide emergency shelter as needed during a three-year time frame.

The board also conducted a 20-minute executive session to review personnel and litigation matters.
