The Archbold Area School Board of Education tackled personnel action, and nailed-down some contracts for the next year, during their session Monday night. Ward Construction of Leipsic was hired for the paving project at the elementary and high school parking lots, at a cost of just under $52,000. And the Archbold board approved a contract for liability, auto, violence, and property insurance, at a cost of $39,152. That’s an increase of about 5% over the previous year.
Three teachers at Archbold submitted letters of resignation; including Sarah Tiplady and Tara Yunker from the elementary staff, and Vanessa Camen as speech teacher. Kristina Bowerman was approved on a one-year contract as Spanish Teacher; and Archbold hired Elizabeth Voll as high school and middle school band director. The Archbold Board of Education also approved local Vietnam War veteran Darrell Schultz as a graduate, during their Monday session.
