NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. --- Funding from the Safe and Drug Free Schools program will provide counseling in the Wilmington Area School District.

Daniel Barnes of New Castle will provide counseling for students and resources to teachers in the amount of $2,000. The board of school directors approved the contract Monday.

Elementary Principal George Leidigh said Barnes is working with elementary teachers on dealing with resiliency.

The board approved the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV's 2004-05 general operating budget in the amount of $3,976,793. The IU IV provides educational services for school districts in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties.

Slight decrease

Wilmington's contribution totals $16,691, a slight decrease from last year's budget. The total IU budget has increased by 2.8 percent.

In other business, the board unanimously agreed to endorse and formally join the statewide Pride and Promise campaign.

The statewide campaign is sponsored by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, and is designed to promote the accomplishments of public schools and the value of public education.

Superintendent Dr. C. Joyce Nicksick commented after the meeting that Wilmington would promote the campaign by placing information on the district's Web site.
