DELPHOS — Vantage Career Center will continue to accept Jefferson students following the Delphos City Schools Board of Education approval of a five-year contract with the vocational school.

The price tag for the school for students to attend Vantage varies each year with Vantage providing a per-pupil cost. The cost for the 2012-13 school year is $74,907 at $2,675.25 per student with 28 students attending.

Payments are made in February and May.

Treasurer Brad Rostorfer said approval of the contract guarantees Jefferson students positions in programs at Vantage.

“We have never had a problem getting one of our students into a program they are interested in,” Rostorfer said. “The contract just shows their good faith to take our students who choose to go and we will pay for them.”

 

The board approved the Delphos Public Library’s 2013 Budget with $575,900 in appropriations. The Library Board of Trustees will approve the budget at today’s meeting.
The school board also noted its support of Ohio Educational Service Centers. According to Interim Superintendent Sukup, Governor John Kasich has proposed cuts to ESCs.

“The state government wants to drastically cut the county education service center and then funds would come out of the school district’s pocket when services are used,” Sukup said. “This would quickly eat up any additional funds a district would receive with Kasich’s new budget.”

Delphos City Schools will dismiss classes at 1:30 p.m. on March 27 for Easter break. St. John’s students will also be dismissed at 1:30 p.m on March 27 but will be in the classroom on March 28 with a 1:30 p.m. dismissal.

Volunteers for the spring sports season were approved. Damon Ulm and Joel Brown will help with track and Clay Erman, Rusty Thompson, Jordan Jettinghoff, Jeff Stockwell and Todd Teman will help with baseball.

School board members made plans to help provide breakfast for high-schoolers taking the OGT math test on Tuesday. All five school board members flipped pancakes for the cause.
