Mt. Pleasant Area to fill supplemental contracts

| Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011

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.

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 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.
