North Central School Board Approves New Hires, Sees Bright Financial Future


Local students involved in the indoor track season will be recognized for their efforts this year.

The board approved the hiring of Amanda Fellers to work as a long-term substitute, half-time as an afternoon elementary school art teacher.

Chris Fidler was hired at $100/day as a full-time substitute; he was also given a one-year supplemental contract for being as athletic trainer 2/3.

The board rejected a recommendation to fill the position of faculty manager.

Kathleen Hellard for the cafeteria for two hours a day.

Kim Lehsten and Stacey Turner as Custodian II (25 hours/week, 186 days)

Courtney Denstedt and Lori Moore as custodian substitutes.

Danielle Fidler was hired as an athletic trainer for 1/3.

Lisa Blue, Sharon Deetz, Melinda Fugate, Jason Luthy, Connie Myers, John Shell, Donald Slamka and Ashley Stewart were hired as Entry Years Mentors.

Jonathan Bostic, Ph.D., and Brooks Vostal, Ph.D. were hired as consultants at $900 a day for eight days each.

The board approved a trip by the local FFA chapter to travel to Indianapolis.

The board approved the 5-Year Outlook that will mean the district should end up with a $1.412 million surplus.

The board transferred $33,000 from the general fund to restore the Cafeteria Fund. The fund has dropped $75,000 over the last eight years as fewer students have purchased meals. One change was the Whole Grain law that further turned off students.

The board met in executive session for 90 minutes to discuss a grievance.
