Ohio Hi-Point School board members positively evaluated their district treasurer Wednesday in a regular meeting, and followed through with a pay increase approved last year.

Eric Adelsberger received an excellent overall rating from the board.

The treasurer’s salary currently is $89,000, which was set as part of a pact approved last year. In 2015, his salary will be set at $95,000, and it will be $101,000 in 2016.

Mr. Adelsberger has worked with the district since 1997 and is under contract with Hi-Point through the 2017 school year.

“Mr. Adelsberger is very professional in all aspects of his position. He’s accurate with calculations and projections with the school district, and he’s engaged with the entire organization for new and innovative ideas,” board president Anne Reames said.

Personnel moves included approval of Lisa Coburn to teach the satellite business course at Indian Lake High School, and Aaron Thompson was approved to fill the agriculture education vacancy at Upper Scioto Valley.

In other action, the board approved an agreement with Marysville High School to implement a supply chain management satellite program, and hired Jeremiah Martin as the instructor.

Also approved was an agreement with architectural and engineering firm Freytag & Associates Inc. of Sidney in an amount not to exceed $39,200 for facility design plans that could direct the district with its maintenance and future building improvements.

Hi-Point is introducing new literature designed to share more information about its offerings, and help students decide if they want to try career-technical education. Four new booklets provide an overview of Ohio Hi-Point, as well as information about specific programs and instructions for prospective students and parents.

The board also announced its plans to begin advertising in October for applicants to replace outgoing Superintendent Dr. Jeff Price, who retires effective July 31, 2015.

The next regular meeting is 7 p.m. Sept. 24.
