The Ridgemont Board of Education released information on a Special Board Meeting held Wednesday evening.
The board took care of personnel itmes including:
The Ridgemont Board of Education accepted the resignation of Teresa Swartz (Intervention Specialist) and Adam Baumgartner (7-12 Science) at tonight’s special Board meeting. The BOE approved Kevin Wingfield to fill the 7-12 science vacancy.
Facilities issues were also discussed:
The purpose of the special meeting was to approve payment to Buchenroth Excavating and The Shelly Company for excavating and stone for an additional parking lot behind the new PreK-12 Building. The additional parking lot will provide 104 extra spaces for the district. The current amount of parking designed through the state project manual is not enough for daily use and evening events. This motion allows the initial phase to be completed prior to the start of school with final paving to come later in the year.
And the Superintendent’s Position was also presented:
At the June 29th Board of Education Meeting, Ridgemont’s Board voted to post the newly vacated superintendent’s position to look for an interim for the 2017-2018 school year. In an effort to bring the highest quality candidate to the district who would be fervently committed to Ridgemont’s direction, the Board informed the Ohio School Board Association, the Buckeye Association of School Administrators, the Auglaize County ESC and the Midwest Regional ESC of their intent to look for an interim. Since this time, Emmy Beeson, by direction of the Board, has begun to investigate possible candidates. The BOE will consider candidates and is hopeful to have an interim in place at the July 27th meeting as they consider a succession plan for the following years.
