Superintendent Tom Kopatich reported at the June 26 meeting of the Mount Vernon School Board that all employees for the Metropolitan School District, or MSD, of Mount Vernon are set to be in place by July 2, the first board meeting of July. Any exceptions will result from “the domino effect,” when a current MSD of Mount Vernon employee vacates a position to fill an advertised position.
The board confirmed the employment of the following individuals: Stacy Culley as teacher assistant/detention center at the junior high; Nathan Ellis as assistant high school football coach; Sarah Hall as junior high cheerleader sponsor (half stipend), Meghann Herrenbruck as teacher assistant/remediation, Title 1 at West; Rachel Lockhart as junior high special education teacher; Amy Rutledge as teacher assistant/detention at the high school; Jacquelyn Wagner as teacher assistant/remediation, Title 1 at West; Robert Walker as teacher assistant/remediation at Marrs and Travis Wolfe as 6th grade teacher at the junior high.
“The domino effect” caused the board to accept the resignation from Stacey Culley, effective immediately, as a food service worker.
In other business:
The board adopted revised Policy 404.01 Responsible Technology Use. This policy will be of special interest to 6th grade iPad users this fall.
The board set bonds for all persons responsible for school district funds. Current bonds expire June 30, 2012.
The board voted to contract with AdTec in the amount of $3,750 to file for Universal Service Fund discounts for the funding year 2013-2014.
