WESTFIELD - The Brocton Board of Education met at an unusual place, the Westfield Academy and Central School's auditorium.
Earlier, Brocton and Westfield school boards had convened to jointly interview Western New York Educational Service Council, one of the companies that responded to the Request for Proposal (RFP) to study and report on the feasibility of a merger between the two districts.
This was Brocton's scheduled meeting date, so after the interview and discussion was complete, the Brocton Board reconvened to deal with a small number of items.
Board President Thomas DeJoe asked for a moment of silence to honor former Brocton Superintendent Jack Skahill who recently passed away.
The board unanimously approved four personnel appointments. Elizabeth Parra was appointed to a probationary period in secondary special education effective Aug. 30. Sandra Wiberg was appointed to a part-time cook position effective Aug. 28. She will work three and a half hours a day at a rate of $12.31 per hour. Patrick Hodge was appointed a part-time summer technology assistant from July 2 to Aug. 24. He will be paid $7.25 per hour for a work week not to exceed 30 hours. Jennifer Starcher was appointed to the position of special education/data entry secretary at a yearly salary of $23,058 effective Aug. 20.
Doug Walter was appointed to serve as legislative liaison for the 2012-2013 school year and Todd McFadden was appointed alternate.
The next meeting of the Brocton Board will be a joint meeting with Westfield to be held in the auditorium in Brocton. The purpose will be to interview Costallo & Silky, Educational Consultant, the other company that responded to the RFP.
