DANVILLE — The Danville Board of Education accepted the resignation of Edward Honabarger as physical education/health teacher on Monday. Honabarger was employed as the high school principal earlier this month, and will continue to serve as head football coach.
The rest of the meeting was largely routine, Treasurer Mary Payne told the News on Tuesday.
Regarding personnel, the board approved advancing Rebecca Workman on the approved salary schedule for coursework completed. It employed Steven Butcher and Lindsey Dile as band camp assistants and issued a number of supplemental contracts for the 2010-11 school year. Also hired were Autumn Grosscup, JV volleyball coach; William Columber, substitute/activity bus driver; and Carolyn Miller, LPN for 21st Century Grant summer school program.
The following individuals were appointed to serve on the Family and Civic Engagement Team: Community member Barb Mickley, parent Carolyn Thompson, business owner Kim Hawk, social worker Michelle Odhe, school nurse Carolyn Miller and Danville school administrator Lynn Shoemaker.
On the financial news, Payne reported that the general fund ended on a positive note for the 2009-10 fiscal year, adding $33,326 to the carryover balance with $29,998 encumbered and $1,282 advance due back to the general fund. She said a preliminary five-year forecast update of the general fund estimates a budget shortfall of $342,600 for the upcoming fiscal year.
“The base salary schedule,” Payne said, “has not been increased and efforts are being made to control or reduce costs wherever possible.”
Besides approving routine financial reports and transactions, the board approved an agreement with InfoLink to provide technology support to the district and approved an agreement with Cornerstone Pediatric Therapy LTD to provide required physical therapy services for the 2010-11 school year. It also ratified an agreement with the Danville Police Department to provide services at certain scheduled school events for the 2010-11 school year.
Payne said the board agreed to advance half the cost of new uniforms to the cheerleading activity fund from the general fund to be paid back through fundraising activities. The athletic boosters will pay the other half.
Other actions taken by the board included the appointment of Carolyn Addair as the Danville delegate to the 2010 Ohio School Boards Association Capital Conference with Charles Bratton to serve as the alternate.
