UTICA — The North Fork Board of Education on Monday rescinded the requirement for parking permit fees, Treasurer Tonya Mickley told the News on Tuesday. Refunds will be given to those individuals who have already purchases a permit.
The rest of the meeting, Mickley said, was largely routine.
Regarding personnel, the board accepted a letter of resignation from bus driver James Richardson. It granted a continuing contract to special education secretary Amy Cree, employed Susan Fairbanks as high school intervention specialist and approved Tim Dettwiller, Jennifer Fields, Ellen Nixon, Larry Reichard and Josh Spung as Virtual Learning Academy instructors. The board recalled a handful of educational aides from the reduction in force — Gwen Crain, Tabetha Hoffer, Tina Pargeon and Tracey Poole — because their services are mandated by special education regulations. Karen Bricker, Deanna Gilmore, James Richardson and Stacy Stevens were added to the classified substitute list, and the board accepted a list of certified substitutes as presented by the Licking County Educational Service Center.
In addition to approving routine fiscal actions, the board transferred athletic fundraiser monies to individual sports accounts and contracted with Big “O” Refuse to provide refuse service to the district through May 2015.
Other actions taken by the board included the approval of the Student Activities Conduct Code and Rules, and the appointment of Lori Stradley as delegate to the Ohio School Boards Association Capital Conference, with Ben Bandy to serve as the alternate.
The next regular meeting of the North Fork school board is scheduled for Sept. 16. It will be held at 7 p.m. in Newton Elementary School. A public discussion and tour of the building will begin at 6:30 p.m.
