USD 333 board deals with personel items
The Unified School District 333 board of education dealt with several personnel matters during its May meeting Monday night at the board office.
Teacher contracts for the 2013-14 school year were approved by the board.
The board approved the hiring of Rebecca Charbonneau as a second grade teacher and Christa Bergmann as a Learning Cooperative of North Central Kansas (LCNCK) interrelated teacher at the Concordia Junior-Senior High School.
Transfers approved by the board include:
Carrie Stensaas, from Concordia Elementary School paraprofessional to third grade teacher; Doreen Anderson, from Republic County Middle School to Belleville East Elementary School; Ana Berger, from K-3 to 3-6 at Washington County Schools; Deanna Brown, from Learning Center to Republic County Junior-Senior High School; Stacey Scott, from Learning Center interrelated teacher to gifted facilitator; Gerald Sorell, from self-contained interrelated classroom to grades 7-12 in the Concordia Junior-Senior High School; Deb Tillinghast, from grades 4-6 to 7-9 at Washington County Schools; and Lisa Wunderlee, from .5 FTE to 1.0 FTE at Clifton-Clyde Grade School.
The resignations of Tarin Hauck, third grade teacher at Concordia Elementary School, and Sara Hutchinson, second grade teacher at Concordia Elementary School, were accepted by the board.
The board also approved an agreement for shared services with LCNCK for Kathryn Brown.
Also during the meeting, the board approved a “yes” vote by the district on a Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) proposal to split Class 4A into two divisions for volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball for the 2013-14 school year and for football in 2014.
The proposal was approved by the KSHSAA board of directors by a vote of 35-27. All 4A schools will now vote on it.
Class 4A now has 64 schools, and it would be split into Division I and Division II with 32 schools each.
Concordia, as one of the bottom 32 based on enrollment, would be in Division II.
“I think it is good. We can compete,” Concordia Junior-Senior High School principal Quentin Breese told the board, “I think our coaches really support it.”
Schools have until June 3 to vote on the proposal, and it needs 33 “yes” votes for approval.
An agreement between the Community Foundation for Cloud County and the school district for the establishment of a $10,000 education fund was approved by the board.
The board gave approval to a motion to allow the administration to continue to move forward with the creation of a virtual school program.
“I think we are ready to take the next step,” superintendent of schools Beverly Mortimer said.
Membership in the Kansas Association of School Boards (KASB) and legal services at a cost of $9,984 was approved.
Mortimer told the board that the KASB fees had gone up some from the previous year, but that there are some added services.
The board set the date for the closeout meeting for June 26 at noon.
Revisions for the Concordia Elementary School, Concordia Junior-Senior High School and athletic and activities handbooks were approved.
The board also approved the use of the district facilities for the football, boys’ and girls’ basketball and volleyball summer camps at no cost.
A request from Rachel Hasch for early graduation was approved. She will graduate in Dec. 2013 instead of May, 2014.
