Most of Montoursville’s 2013 graduates enrolled in four-year colleges

Sixty-three percent of Montoursville Area School District’s 2013 graduating class is enrolled in post-secondary education, according to figures released at Tuesday night’s school board meeting.

Of those 99 students, 89 are in four-year colleges or universities and another 10 in two-year or other post-secondary schools.

Figures also revealed that a total of 14 seniors did not graduate on time with their 2013 classmates.

However, five of those students met graduation requirements by Aug. 31.

One other student is enrolled in the 2013-14 school year in order to meet those graduation requirements.

The board approved a rate change with Promised Land Bussing from $220.52 per day to $240.98 per day in order to accommodate more students in school-to-work placements. The rate change is effective Sept. 9.

In personnel matters, the board approved a long-term substitute assignment for Amanda Wolfe as Lyter Elementary School special education teacher from Nov. 18, 2013 to Jan. 31, 2014.

Wolfe will serve in place of Tara Foster, who was granted maternity leave for that same period of time.

School directors approved Curtis Jacobson as seventh grade boys basketball at a stipend of $2,600. He replaces Eric Wise.

Dan Tucker was approved for the new position of strength and conditioning coach at a stipend of $4,500.

The board met in executive session following the regular meeting to consider a legal matter.
