Greater Clark school board has more work to do on new policy



His compensation package in the contract is about $65,000. Kevin Satterly, board member, said Cooper’s work had saved the district money and kept money in its nonreverting fund.

The board voted in favor of the measure 6-1 with board member Jerry White opposing. 

Cooper is the uncle of Christina Gilkey, board president. She did not abstain from the vote, nor has she since her election in 2008.



In the board’s fifth unannounced personnel agenda change this year, Utica Elementary School Principal Kim Hartlage was promoted as the district’s executive director for elementary education.

Melin said the district has saved about $700,000 by moving positions around in administration, as well as removing some and adding new ones. He said with 12 elementary schools in the district, he thought it was a good idea to have one person help direct all of them.

Hartlage’s contract lasts for two years and sets her salary at $111,640 per year.

Check out an upcoming edition of the News and Tribune and for more coverage of the board’s move to keep personnel reports private until they’ve been voted upon.
