District cuts two cafeteria positions

B y Jaime Thomas

The Granville Board of Education approved the elimination of two cafeteria positions at a meeting Monday night.

The two employees, Rebecca Hadeka and Dianne Connors, had the least seniority within the food service area. District Clerk Connie Resetar said the action stemmed from financial issues.

“It was only because of financial impact and food service hours. Some employees had a change of hours, but those two positions were eliminated,” she said, noting they are on a four-year callback list.

“Such analysis demonstrated that it was impossible to retain all currently employed food service helpers positions by adjusting various schedules without detrimental financial impacts on the food services at the school,” according to the meeting’s agenda.

Also during the meeting, the board agreed to extend District Superintendent Mark Bessen’s contract for one year, to 2016. His salary will remain at its current rate of $136,680 per year.

The board also approved the results of the budget vote with a total of $25,071,050 for the 2013-2014 school year. Officials hired Jane Havens as varsity head girls soccer coach for the fall, as well as Arthur Vaughn as girls junior varsity soccer coach and Sharisa Dunavan as the girls modified coach.

And as Manuchehr Dorgabekov, a foreign exchange student, returned to his native Tajikistan on Wednesday, the board presented him with an honorary diploma. Resetar said Dorgabekov thanked Granville for accepting him into the school and the community.

The next board of education meeting will take place on June 17 at 7 p.m.
