Green hires assistant principals for two buildings
GREEN — Two-year contracts were approved for two new assistant principals at the Green Local Schools Board of Education meeting July 10.
Scott Shank was hired to serve at Green Primary School and Ryan Kumpf was hired for Green Intermediate School.
According to district officials, Shank has been a first-grade teacher at Green Primary for the past five years. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees and an administrative principal’s certificate from The University of Akron (UA).
Kumpf has taught at Perry Local Schools for two years and previously taught at North Canton City Schools. He has a bachelor’s degree from Walsh University and a master’s degree and principal’s license from UA.
Both will earn a salary of $64,272, according to Treasurer Eydie Snowberger.
In another employment matter, the board hired Kory Smith as a guidance counselor for Green High School.
Also at the meeting, the board approved accepting two $15,000 grants from the GAR Foundation in Akron.
The funds were granted to Green Primary for continuing education through iPad technology and Green Intermediate for the continuation of the “Learning to Lead” fund. Green Intermediate Principal Mark Booth said students are learning leadership principles by studying Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” The grant funds will be used for training, materials and technology, he added.
“Congratulations to the grant writers. We encourage teachers to write grants,” said school board member Connie Leonard.
“We appreciate the initiative, and students will likely benefit from [the grants],” agreed Bob Campbell, board president.
In other business, the board approved:
• certified and classified personnel items, along with supplemental contracts;
• $48,000 to be paid to the Green Band Boosters to aid in the purchase of new band uniforms;
• a $21,200 contract with Summit Academics-Technology-Motivation through the Summit County Educational Service Center for the 2012-13 school year;
• a contract with Child Guidance and Family Solutions for $128,932.84 for the 2012-13 school year, which is paid through Title 6B funds; and
• contracts with the Blick Clinic for behavioral consultation services for the next school year at $77 per hour, to be paid for using Title 6B funds.
The board adjourned for two executive sessions, once at the beginning and one at the end, to discuss personnel issues. The next regular Green Board of Education meeting is scheduled for Aug. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Administration Building, 1755 Town Park Blvd.
