Board acts on personnel issues

HUGHESVILLE — The East Lycoming School Board took action on a number of personnel issues during its regular monthly meeting Tuesday night.

Superintendent Michael Pawlik said that with the state budget still unresolved, the district’s subsidies for funding various programs are in jeopardy of ending by Friday.

The state Legislature approved a spending plan this summer, but revenues for funding the budget have yet to be approved.

That leaves the state with a more than $2 billion deficit.

“There seems to be no urgency to get this done,” Pawlik said.

The board approved the following hirings:

• Karin Waugh, part-time interventionist, Ferrell Elementary School, $32.42 per hour.

• Brooke McConnell, part-time pre-kindergarten assistant teacher, Renn Elementary School, $15.80 per hour.

• Colleen Converse, part-time building secretary, Ashkar Elementary School, $12.82 per hour.

• Tammie Rudloff and Bobbi Jo Swisher, part-time supervisory aides, Ashkar, $10.57 per hour.

• Ruth Fry, assistant varsity cheerleading coach for the 2017-18 school year, $2,613.

The board accepted the resignation of Nathan Hill, assistant baseball coach.

Directors approved the induction of Brian Miller, a 1996 Hughesville High School graduate, into the school’s academic hall of fame. Miller is an author, historian and lecturer.

Don Baylor was recognized for his 55 years of service to the district as a bus driver.

He was presented with a plaque from the district.
