FORT JENNINGS — Board members accepted the upcoming retirement/resignation of the school’s Band Director, Rose Mary Warnecke, during the board meeting Wednesday night. Warnecke will continue through the 2014/15 school year under the Victory Lap Clause and her rehire date will take place at the regular board meeting on March 19, 2014.
High School Principal Nicholas Langhals said the school was very lucky to have Mrs. Warnecke back for one more year.
“The band had a successful trip (Disney) and there have been a lot of good comments,” Langhals added. “Mrs. Warnecke and the band members did a fine job representing the school.”
Langhals reported on Race to the Top and said they just completed a meeting with the area representative, Nancy Allison, and completed a survey meeting all goals and expectations.
“Everything is on schedule,” Langhals affirmed. “There have been talks of a fifth year to finish up things on a state level and no information about money for the district.”
Board members approved Todd Hoehn as Putnam County League (PCL) basketball tournament manager and Rob Warnecke as the assistant tournament manager for the games which will be hosted by Fort Jennings High School.
Members also approved the five-year forecast as submitted.
“We make best-guess estimates and predictions we can,” Langhals stated.
Board members approved the return of the advance of $185.60 back to the General Fund from the Title II-A Fund.
In addition, members approved amending estimated receipts/appropriations where the receipts were greater than anticipated revenues, less than anticipated revenues, or not included in the original budget.
The next school board meeting will be held in the library at 7:30 p.m. on Dec.18.
