DELPHOS — RODOC Sales Service and Leasing will continue to service the Delphos City Schools’ bus fleet.

School board members approved a 5-year contract with the local business during Monday’s meeting.


The contract is for $37,050 a year, which includes a mechanic on-site at the bus garage during transportation hours and labor for maintenance on the district’s 13 buses. The district must still pay for any needed parts.


Board members also learned June 5 will be the last for students for this school year with June 6 a teacher work day. The district gained four calamity days to be used after scheduling four of the school’s make-up days. The original final day was May 30. Seniors will not have to make up days after graduation.

“We still have two days put back if we need them,” Superintendent Kevin Wolfe said. “We will use two of the new days to end the school year on that Thursday.”

Wolfe also said the district is wrapping up the final year of Race to the Top activities.

“The building principals are completing the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System process and the teachers are completing their post assessments for the year,” Wolfe said.

He added that bus drivers are still needed for the district. Interested persons can apply at the Administrative Building.

During the Finance Report, Treasurer Brad Rostorfer recapped what was covered in the Finance Committee meeting Wednesday.

“High School Principal John Edinger and Digital Academy and Athletic Director Chris Sommers were in attendance and outlined the process for evaluating head coaches in the athletic programs,” Rostorfer said. “Sommers also gave statistics for the Delphos Digital Academy, which includes 40 full-time students (six open enrollment) and the academy provides class or classes to 150 other students.”

Rostorfer also presented the final draft of the audit report, news that St. John’s plans to retain all of its auxiliary service teachers for the next school year and the third-grade teaching position currently advertised and going through the in-house posting process, may result in a new employee.

In other business, the board:

• Issued 3-year contracts to high school instructors John Vennekotter, Chad Brinkman and Vera White;

• Approved Josh Early as a volunteer volleyball coach; and

• Approved supplemental contracts to Kristi Hageman as junior varsity volleyball coach; Lindsay Ebbeskotte as seventh grade boys basketabll coach; Rebekah Stemen as varsity football cheerleading coach; and Maureen Teman as junior varsity football cheerleading coach.
