Schools panel discusses sub problems

October 27, 2010

A company contracted to provide substitute teachers has reportedly experienced problems recently.

Members of the Personnel/Athletics and Co-Curricular Committee of the Warren County School District's board of directors discussed those problems during Tuesday's meeting. Committee Chair Thomas Knapp said he heard the company, Kelly Services, provided two substitutes for six recent absences at Eisenhower Middle/High School.

"I don't know if they're having trouble getting replacements again," Knapp said.

Director of Administrative Support Services Amy Stewart said representatives of Kelly Services have not indicated such problems, adding that she meets with them regularly.

Human Resources Supervisor Suzanne Turner said the company has had software trouble, leaving a monthly report unavailable for the committee. She said she planned to present two reports at the next meeting if available.

In addition, committee members received a list of possible playoff teams for the fall season. In total, 10 teams appeared on the list.

They included boys soccer and volleyball from Eisenhower Middle/High School. Youngsville High School may have its cross country team in the playoffs while Warren Area High School has the possibility of playoffs for cross country, football, boys golf, girls golf, boys soccer, girls tennis and volleyball.

Knapp asked if the teams were guaranteed playoff spots. Coordinator of District-Wide Athletics and Co-Curricular Activities James Miller said some things still have to happen for those teams to make it, but they all have a good chance.

Also, the committee forwarded to the full board a list of co-curricular/instructional supplemental contracts. It included hiring a crossing guard at Youngsville Elementary/Middle School and relied on funding in the 2010-2011 budget.

Committee member John Grant asked if the position constituted a replacement. Miller confirmed that it did.

Members planned to hold their next meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23 at Warren County Career Center.
