The Logan County Educational Service Center (ESC) board voted to work in collaboration with the Shelby County ESC to provide services to county schools Thursday.
The board voted to provide occupational therapy supervisor services to Bellefontaine City Schools, special education director services to Riverside, and mental health services to Indian Lake. Those services will be provided by the Shelby County ESC through the Logan County ESC.
The board also approved the instructional service agreement between West Liberty-Salem, the Adriel School, and the ESC. This provides the educational component for the children housed at Adriel.
Superintendent Heather Neer comments on the services.
The employment of Gerald Lenhart, Jr. was approved during the meeting. Lenhart will be an Indian Lake Middle School Intervention Specialist.
A stipend in the amount of $2,500 was approved for gifted coordinator Jennifer Frederick as compensation for work performed on the STEM Academy.
The board went into executive session to evaluate treasurer Sara Tracey.
Board president Janet Moore said, "Sara is an excellent treasurer and we are fortunate to have her. Her experience with financial matters is invaluable."
The board also voted to increase the reimbursement rate for mileage for all ESC employees from $.45 per mile to $.50 per mile.
The resignation of Psychologist Alison Wynne for personal reasons was also accepted.
The Logan County Educational Service Center Board will meet again on July 25th at 6:30 pm.
