The Bond County Unit 2 School Board of Education acted on personnel issues Monday night. Most of the personnel changes are effective at the end of the 2015-16 school year.
Elizabeth Kelley, from Litchfield, was hired as a teacher at the Greenville Elementary School. Superintendent Wes Olson said she will teach kindergarten.
Kara Kinney of Edwardsville was hired as a speech and language pathologist at the elementary school. Terry Swalley of Greenville was approved as a special education teacher at Greenville Jr. High.
The board hired Erin Shevlin, Katie Lynch and Joe Alstat to teach during the high school summer school program.
Teresa Tompkins will be the new district food service director beginning next school year; she replaces Pat Frey, who will be retiring.
Resignations accepted by the board included Chelsea Fitch as a speech and language pathologist at GES, Theresa Funneman as a GES food service employee, and Dave Chilovich as the Sorento boys’ basketball coach.
Food service personnel hired by the board were Billie Worstell at the high school, and Michele McCasland-Walker at GES. Kim Lappie will be the head cook at Sorento School.
The board agreed to hire two summer workers for maintenance and grounds duties.
The board rehired fall and winter coaches in the district, with the exception of Roger Lloyd as high school girl’s golf coach. Unit 2 still has openings in high school boy’s and girl’s golf, and Sorento boy’s and girl’s basketball.
Patty Hunter is retiring as a receptionist/secretary at the Unit 2 central office. The board will not fill that position, and has decided to distribute her duties to other employees in that office. Those employees are having their salaries adjusted for the extra duties.
Rick Clanton, head custodian at the high school, and Andrew Crosswait, special education aide at the high school, were granted leaves of absence.
