HAVILAND – Wayne Trace Local School Board of Education met for its annual organizational meeting Monday, Jan. 13. Lisa McClure was named board president, and regularly monthly meetings were set for the second Monday of each month beginning at 7:30 p.m.

A contract was approved for Jerry Hessel as the new technology coordinator. Hessel is currently the technology coordinator at Paulding Exempted Village Schools and will be starting with the Wayne Trace School district beginning Feb. 10.

“With the hiring of a new technology coordinator, we are now in a position to move forward with the implementation of the Straight A Fund grant monies,” said superintendent Stephen Arnold. “This was the first step for the district.”

Arnold also reported that Wayne Trace has now exceeded the set amount of calamity days required for the 2013-14 school year. Make up days have been set for Feb. 17 on Presidents Day as well as May 29.

“We appreciate all the help we received from community members in helping to clean up water from the broken sprinkler system at the Junior/Senior building,” Arnold said. A crack in the system early last week caused water to flood the building, and the school received large support from members of the community who helped cleanup the mess within the school building.

The board accepted the resignation of Judith Snook as teacher after 26 years with the district.

Harry Bland was approved as a basketball volunteer coach and Travis Tumblin was approved as baseball volunteer coach.
