DELPHOS — Delphos City Schools will politely decline an offer by the Ohio School Facilities Commission for a new school building. Officials learned this month the district was eligible to start the process through the OSFC.

“We know the district and the community are not in a financial position to consider this,” Board President John Klausing said Monday evening.
Treasurer Brad Rostorfer said he will prepare the paperwork to send back to the OSFC to have the district removed from the list.

The district will join others in Allen County to improve purchasing power of items districts all use. The school board approved joining the cooperative which has no membership fee or cost to belong. The initiative is in its infancy.

Bus driver Doris Knebel brought concerns to the board. Several months ago, she had asked Superintendent Frank Sukup for an aide on the bus she drives to Spencerville four days a week with special-needs preschoolers. Sukup found her an aide and Teresa Sensibaugh now rides with Knebel. Knebel’s concern was that she was under the belief Sensibaugh’s position was only temporary and she would not have an aide the entire school year. Sukup assured her Sensibaugh’s position was for remainder of the year and would be revisited on an as-needed basis after that. Knebel seemed relieved and thanked the board for their time.

Perry Wiltsie will serve as president pro-tem until the 7 p.m. Jan. 14 meeting when new officers are elected. The organizational meeting will be held in the administrative building.

In other business, the board:
• Accepted the resignation/retirement of Landeck Elementary School cook Pat Rode. Rode has been with the district for 30 years. She will retire at the end of the school year;
• Approved Chad Schrader for a 5-hour cleaning position at Jefferson High School; and
• Approved supplemental contracts for coaches for spring sports as follows: Larry “Bub” Lindeman, varsity boys track; Jeff Stant, junior high boys track; Ryan Carder, varsity girls track; Ben Rahrig, junior high girls track; Doug Geary, varsity baseball; and Josiah Stober, varsity softball.
