The Western Reserve Board of Education handled these matters Thursday night:
Approved parental leave for Melanie Carfola, a high school special-education teacher, from April 30 to the end of the school year. Superintendent Charles Swindler said Carfola requested leave for the 2003-04 school year also, but she does not have to take the entire year.
Approved payment in lieu of providing transportation to two parents who have chosen to transport their children out of the district.
Approved membership in the Area Cooperative Computerized Educational Service System for accounting, payroll, pupil information, grades, scheduling and library services.
