The district also hired Kathy Gilland as principal of Utica Elementary School. Gilland makes the move after two years as the principal of Clarksville Elementary School.
A request for comment submitted to a representative of Clarksville Community Schools did not receive a response by press time.
These are the first hires the district has made since deciding to remove personnel reports from public view on their public agenda website on July 9.
The district hired Jessica Broady as an assistant principal at River Valley Middle School.
The board also reviewed the results of some school bus inspections performed by Indiana State Police in April.
Gary Green, director of transportation, said while the state police’s website for bus information posts initial inspection results, some of their information is inaccurate or not updated promptly.
He said while all but one of the district’s 140 buses are in good shape, the website shows 11 buses out of service and more ordered for repair.
He said all necessary repairs have been concluded, except for one bus that needs more extensive work.
ALSO AT THE MEETING:
Thomas Dykiel, chief financial officer, said the district’s projected $2.5 million budget shortfall should be closed up by December. He said they’ll have to spend some more of their Rainy Day Fund and the Capital Projects Fund will be completely depleted, but they should be in the black by the end of the year.
