The search for a new person to lead North Central Schools will begin in earnest when the Board of Education reviews applications it has received.
The search will fill a vacancy created when Ken Boyer announced his resignation at the Feb. 27 meeting. The deadline for applications is April 12. When the board next convenes April 18, there should be a package from each applicant, Board President Shane Boothman said. The board will select from those applicants for interviews at a later date, likely the end of April to the first week of May.
While Boothman was thinking of a daytime interview, Boyer said since the applicants are working, interviews generally happen at night.
The school is interviewing for a new guidance counselor as well. The initial pool was 12, which was whittled down to six or seven semifinalists. There are now two candidates.
The district is looking at finalizing a propane station for buses. The district will have put a pad in as well as electricity. The district would pay the propane company $1 per year.
There are two companies, one from Ohio and another from Indiana, in the running to be the provider. The school is leaning towards the Ohio company as it is offering a 5-year contract.
The district’s heating and air conditioning needs work. Johnson Controls installed the units, and while the school will have two local companies take a look, it will likely rely on JCI to do the repairs, Boyer said,
“We think it will be too much for them,” Boyer said.
