Apollo-Ridge will have a new physics teacher for the coming school year.

The school board Thursday night hired David Hauge of Indiana, Pa., for a first-year starting salary of $36,000.

Hauge previously taught in a private school system that officials did not name.

• Resident Samuel Ross of Kiski Township asked about the $6 million fund balance for the school district, which is about 25 percent of the school district's $22.9 million budget. Ross said state law prohibits a real estate tax hike if the budget reserve is more than 8 percent to 12 percent of a district's budget.

Apollo-Ridge hiked its real estate tax 2.1 mills for the coming school year.

District officials said that there are assigned and unassigned uses for the reserve. In Apollo-Ridge's case, most of the $6 million reserve is assigned for pension and health care payments.
