East Allegheny School District's board made various personnel moves on Monday.

Alex Eichler adds new work as assessment/data analysis coordinator to his duties in EA's technology department.

The board hired Carl Baumgart as a high school graphics teacher and Judy Beistel as a special education aide at Logan Middle School.

Professional employees Christie Bacco, Jennifer Borsani, Jennifer Costello and Lisa DeMedio were taken off “temporary” ranks.

Returning for 2013-14 are school dentist Michael Fontana at $2,800 and school physician R. Curtis Waligura at a compensation of $13,500.

Retirements were approved for first-grade teacher Mary Jo Retzer, high school librarian Barbara Bacco-Viola and cafeteria cook Antoinette Colaric.

Resignations were accepted from assistant cheerleader coach Maureen Serrapere and assistant middle school girls soccer coach Candace Jacko.

Leaves were granted to high school nurse Darcy Yeloushan and long-term substitute reading teacher Cristina Meinert.

Preliminary approval was given to revised graduation requirements. Minimums for science and math will be cut from four units/years to three. Four units apiece still would be required in English and social studies plus one each in physical education and health.

Requirements will include the Keystone Exams.

Those scheduled to graduate in 2015 and 2016 will have to earn proficient or advanced standings on Algebra I, Biology, English Literature and English Composition exams.

Beginning with the Class of 2017, students have to be in the proficient and/or advanced range on exams in English Literature, English Composition, two math exams from a choice of Algebra I, Algebra II or Geometry, one science exam from Biology or Chemistry, and one social studies exam from Civics, United States History or World History.

Superintendent Roger A. D'Emidio honored Johnathan Zuro for being Forbes Road Career & Technology Center salutatorian; 23 students who participated in the Carnegie Science Center Science Bowl; winners in Logan's annual science fair; outgoing senior school board student representative Ali Stewart and three rap-singing siblings.

Jaedyn, Jozlyn and Justys Conway were honored for winning a PTO creative arts contest. Jaedyn also qualified for the Fund for Advancement of Minorities through Education or FAME middle school enrichment program at Shady Side Academy.
