Campbell school board hires personnel, accepts resignation
CAMPBELL -- The school board has hired two principals and accepted the resignation of the high school band director.
Board members approved a 230-day contract for Thomas Kempe, who will receive an annual salary of $67,210 as the assistant high school principal.
In other business at its meeting Tuesday, the board hired Marcia Norris as principal of Campbell Middle School with a 230-day contract and a salary of $68,461.
The board also hired special education teacher Patricia Mikolay on a one-year limited contract. Mikolay, a retiree of the school district, had been serving there as a substitute teacher for at least five years.
The board accepted the resignation of high school band director Jonathan Linko. No reason was given for his resignation. School Superintendent Thomas Robey said that several people have already expressed interest in the position.
Those individuals included Linko's assistant, who is temporarily directing the band for the beginning of its season, which started Monday.
Board members also discussed personnel openings for a new French teacher and a part-time nurse and, at the request of Campbell resident Michael Reichert, they addressed questions about the landscaping and maintenance of a war veterans monument near the school.
No decisions were made on those topics, but the superintendent said he should have a recommendation for the teaching position by the next meeting, which is set for Aug. 23.
