Attending a reception for new hires right before their meeting Tuesday evening, Mount Vernon School Board members confirmed the employment of four more staff: Amy Beshears as teacher assistant in special education at Marrs (50 percent) and the high school (50 percent); Matthew Rebeck as assistant director, Special Education Educational Diagnostician, county-wide; Amanda Snow as teacher assistant for remediation in the Lights on After School program at West (32 percent); and Katherine York as teacher assistant in remediation at Farmersville.
Immediately following their unanimous vote to bring in the new hires, board members accepted the resignation of Matthew Rebeck as a school psychologist, effective September 5, 2012, and of Jennifer Schmidt as girls’ assistant basketball coach at the junior high, effective immediately.
In addition to celebrating new hires, Superintendent Tom Kopatich and the board were pleased with the local survey results from MSD of Mount Vernon bus drivers regarding safety. The bus drivers reported for that survey, conducted on May 1, 2012, that zero (0) incidents of stop arm violations occurred. All 37 bus routes were included in the survey that day.
These local statistics stand in stark comparison to the statistics gathered from the national survey: nearly 100,000 drivers reported that 88,025 vehicles passed their buses illegally on a single day.
Superintendent Kopatich expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the community for backing the buses. In addition, he thanked city and county law enforcement for taking seriously any violations of bus safety and tracking down offenders when necessary.
