Robert Gumbita will remain president of the Mt. Pleasant Area School Board.

Gumbita was the only individual nominated for the position at Monday night's reorganization meeting.

Also, David Brooks will remain vice president. He also was the only nominee for that position and approved unanimously by the board.

Directors agreed to retain Attorney John S. Toohey as solicitor for the 2013 with a $7,500 retainer plus $100 per hour for extra services, as well as one professional membership with the Pennsylvania School Boards Association.

Workshop board meetings for 2013 will be on Jan. 8, Feb. 5, March 5, April 9, May 7, June 18, Aug. 6, Sept. 3, Oct. 1 and Nov. 12. Regular board meetings for 2013 will be on Jan. 14, Feb. 11, March 11, April 15, May 13, June 24, Aug. 12, Sept. 9, Oct. 7 and Nov. 18.

There are no regular meetings scheduled in July or December.

Directors approved the Mt. Pleasant Area High School Improvement Plan, which administrator Michael Picarsic said is focused on the areas of reading and math and, beginning in January, biology and literature, to prepare for the upcoming Keystone test.

“It also addresses the high school dropout rate and other targets so that significant improvements will be made to the results that will come back to us in July,” said Picarsic in regards to the results of the Keystone achievement testing.
