Mt. Pleasant Area to fill supplemental contracts
Mt. Pleasant Area School Board will consider filling 17 supplemental contracts during a meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the administration building.
Tuesday night the board discussed the contracts. Three positions may still be pending — ninth-grade baseball coach, assistant softball coach and class play director.
“We’re still waiting on clearances and hopefully, by the end of the week, they’ll have the necessary paperwork together,” said district superintendent Terry Struble. “With baseball and softball, we can wait a little if we have to but we’d like to get the play director going.”
The board will also consider several volunteer positions as well as an agreement for the 2011-2012 school year for Intermediate Unit 1 to provide Title I supplemental education services to district students attending non-public schools.
The board is expected to set a date for its reorganization and general purposes meeting in December, which will likely be at 7 p.m. Dec. 5. There would not be a workshop in December.
In other business during last night’s agenda meeting, board member George Hare recognized former district employee Russ Davis, who died recently.
“He was missed here when he left when he retired and now he will be missed even more,” Hare said. “He always had a smile, and he always had a kind word to say.”
Hare also commended district building and grounds supervisor Barry Bitner on his work.
