School Board Adopts Budget, Bond Resolutions

LISD is heading into a budget crunch in the next few years, and board members have often grumbled about declining state revenue as the cause, and now it will face recapture penalties a year early after an unexpected drop in enrollment. Dr. Kathleen Pittman, Secretary Alan Gedde, President Mona Kirk and Vice President Ruben Sanchez stand in the middle row with James Edwards in the back. He then became superintendent for Sharpsville area School District for seven years before moving to Greenville schools for five.

Orr has been assistant superintendent since 2012.

"Now that we are in this position again, and we are cutting positions again, what are we as a district doing to make sure this isn't going to happen again next year?" she asked.

She wants a superintendent to stick around and help fix the problem.

"I could tell he had an educators heart and was generally concerned about children and their education", she said. "They will get a sponsorship agreement that includes our stadium and our gymnasium", Stone said.


"In fact I wonder why large districts don't do what we do here and copy it because it works well", Uptmor noted. "You ought to be able to laugh every single day and just really, really have fun learning and teaching - because teaching is learning".

The board is considering a one-year extension to Jackson Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Beal's contract, an action it takes annually following the superintendent's evaluation.

School Board member Meggen Sande said Nybladh and Board President Doug Carpenter misled the Herald when they denied reports he was taking paid leave because of the incident, in which Nybladh yelled at district staff.

Spradley voted in favor of looking for a new superintendent last month, but changed his vote Monday night, swinging the 5-4 vote in favor of keeping Knight-Burney. With Ferrara's pending retirement on June 30, Tokar will assume the district's top position. I said 'that's not true. "There's some unique partnerships that I'm interested to learn more about, and I think it's key to bring city leaders in to do some great things here".

During Monday's meeting, the board approved the bid from Boak and Sons Inc. of Youngstown to handle work on a new roof for the Lincoln Avenue school this summer, but turned down the lone bid for work on the HVAC heating/cooling unit after determining the bid for the latter project to be too high. The district will employ a full-time agriculture teacher, a post that used to be shared with Orleans-Niagara BOCES, due to popularity of the program with students. An immediate weakness she noticed that needs immediate addressing is the graduation rate. Two finalists were invited to return on April 10-11 to meet with community and district staff ahead of a second interview with the board.
