LaVille school board meets new teachers, approves admin contracts

LAPAZ — Three new teachers were introduced for the upcoming 2013-14 school year at the Union North School Corporation’s Thursday night board meeting.

New hires include: Stephanie Kingma as the jr. high school English teacher, Lisa Laidig as a third grade teacher, Diane Dent as second grade teacher, and Alex Remble moving from second grade teacher to Title 1.

The board proceeded to the administrator contracts. The board approved the contracts but board member Dave Grenert quickly motioned to amend the motion to approve the administrator’s contracts as presented.

Grenert emphasized the importance of following policy and discussing the contracts after reviewing performance of the administrators.
