Three out-of-state conference trips approved for Penn-Trafford educators
A trio of Penn-Trafford educators will be attending out-of-state conferences early next year at no cost to the school district.
The school board on Monday approved participation by high school teachers Mark Crovak and Derek Cuthbert in the U.S. Marine Educator Workshop in Parris Island, S.C., from Feb. 11 to 24.
The Marine Corps describes the workshop as an annual awareness program that shows high school and community college educators and the media about the making of a Marine.
The board also agreed to let athletic trainer Larry Cooper go to the National Athletic Trainers' Association joint committee meeting in Dallas from Jan. 24 to 27.
Two long-term substitutes are beginning work this month.
Alissa Jones started work Tuesday as a sub for Noell Stultz, who is the emotional-support teacher at McCullough Elementary.
Caitlin Bixler will start on Nov. 18 as a sub for Stephanie Miller, who is a student-learning assistant at Sunrise Estates Elementary.
The school board approved the following athletic hirings:
• Brittany Chiodo and Olivia Rizzo, assistant junior high girls basketball coaches.
• Richard Ginther, assistant varsity softball coach.
• David Moio, junior high girls head basketball coach.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
