Employees of the Greenfield Exempted Village School District are getting raises following action by the board of education at Monday’s meeting.
Board members on Monday approved a 2-percent increase in the salaries of the school administration. And according to superintendent Joe Wills, teachers receive a raise this year, too, as they are in the second-year of a contract approved by the board last year that allowed for a raise. Additionally, other employees will receive raises after the board met in executive session, and then approved an agreement with the Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE).
Also approved was a contract for continuing roof work across the district with roofing work currently going on at Greenfield Elementary, the bus garage, and Rainsboro, Wills said.
A contract was also approved for the installation of new lights at McClain Field. Wills said the installation will be done this summer with the job completed before the beginning of next school year. With the lights, and also planned concrete work in the area and resealing of the student parking lot, Wills said it may become necessary to temporarily close the track at times. However, he said, “We will do our best to keep the track open for public use.”
There is also continuing concrete work going on around the Greenfield campus, Wills reported.
On another matter, McClain students who recently participated in the state track meet were recognized by the board of education. Cody Hardesty and Jhaela Coleman were present, as was McClain Track Coach Bob Bergstrom. Alex Hollar and Kaylee Hurley were unable to attend on Monday, Wills said.
In his report the superintendent reminded board members of the McClain Athletic Boosters golf outing, dinner and auction scheduled for Saturday, June 25 at Buckeye Hills.
He also reported an increase in next year’s school lunch prices. Those prices will be: grades K-5, $2.25; grades 6-12, $2.50; and milk will be $.45.
Employment recommendations approved on Monday by the board are: Cathy Rivas, elementary art; Tim Gossett, high school science; Dan Raike, high school guidance counselor; Alice Teeters, Rainsboro Title 1 teacher; Nicholas McNeal, middle school science; Mary Goolsby, Rainsboro first grade teacher; Lauren Gogolin, Rainsboro second grade teacher; Jessica Williams, high school science; Joe Whitley, seventh grade football; Camden Yates, student summer employment; Howard Zody, football assistant; Thomas Drake II, football assistant; Shane Walterhouse, football assistant; and Jon Chamblin, boys soccer.
The next regular meeting of the Greenfield Exempted Village School District Board of Education is scheduled for July 18 at 7 p.m. at the central office boardroom. The meetings are open to the public.
