Personnel matters approved by South Range school board
BEAVER TOWNSHIP–The South Range school board this week approved several personnel moves, including a change in varsity volleyball coach.
The board accepted the resignation of Kathy Komara as varsity volleyball coach effective Sept. 18. Schools Superintendent Dennis Dunham said Komara is resigning the position because she is taking a job in her field of employment in Virginia.
“We were very happy with [Komara] and wish her well,” Dunham said.
The board then modified the supplemental coaching contract of Kalie Luklan from high school assistant volleyball coach to varsity volleyball coach to replace Komara.
In other business, the board retroactively approved Jared Jenyk as the waste water treatment plant operator effective July 1 through June 30, 2020 at an hourly rate of $35. Any work exceeding the one hour per day will be at a rate of $25 per hour. He will not be eligible for health care benefits.
The board also retroactively approved Lisa Gorby as attendance secretary, James Fantone as the assistant high school interim track consultant, George McDowell as a “technology aide” effective July 1 through June 30, 2021 and Alfred Davison as a part-time cleaner for the 2019-2020 school year.
Also at the meeting, the board granted supplemental contracts for the 2019-2020 school year to Nicole Fryfogle for Speech and Debate advisor, Nicole Rothbauer for Speech and Debate advisor, Michael Murphy for seventh-grade boys basketball; Kristen Szabo for swim coach, Jordan Graham for swim coach, Clyde (Bill) Beaver for middle school cross country, Lynnie Ritter for assistant volleyball, Kathleen Hull for mentor and Jenny Benson for mentor.
