FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Board of Education on Tuesday ratified employment contracts with both the Fredericktown Education Association and the Ohio Association of Public School Employees. Each contract includes a 1 percent base salary increase for Year 1 of the contract and a 2 percent raise in years two and three. With the exception of the treasurer who gets no raise, administrative staff were granted the same increase. The last general pay increase for Fredericktown school employees was in 2007-08.
Before the meeting, board members Charles Streby and Jim Blanchard confirmed that the superintendent search has been narrowed down to two semifinalists: Matthew Chrispin, current principal of Marysville Exempted Village High School, and current superintendent of North Fork Local Schools Scott Hartley. Both candidates will return to Fredericktown for a second round of interviews next week.
Regarding personnel, the board accepted the resignation of Dianne Jaburek, elementary guidance counselor, for the federal guidance grant program and that of Mark DeLaney, from all positions he holds in the district — athletic director, dean of students and head basketball coach.
The board issued a number of supplemental contracts for the 2013-14 school year, and new hires include: Shena Beheler, physical education/health; Renee Lybarger, middle/high school intervention specialist; William Humphrey, middle/high school math; Derek Dibling, middle/high school math; Sarah Craft and Caroline Pletcher, elementary intervention specialists; Lynn Burns, gifted/intervention specialist; Sarah Fearn, half-time English; and Kyle Byrne, part-time summer custodian. The board also approved the superintendent’s job description.
