Meeting: Northeast Dubois Schools

The Northeast Dubois School Board met Tuesday and:

• Approved the following hires: special education assistant Bryce Butler for the high school, special education assistant Krista Knust and cook Rose Austin at the middle school, special education assistants Morgan Shepherd and Stephanie Faulk-Tillberry at Dubois Elementary, and part-time custodian Patty Burke for the school corporation.

• Hired Chester Pools of New Albany to fix the pool for $203,000. Work will include putting in a new liner, fixing pipes and filling cracks. Chester Pools was the company that originally installed the pool in 1975. The work will be done by October and the pool will be ready in time for swim season, Superintendent Bill Hochgesang said.

• Approved the district’s mileage reimbursement policy. The policy has not changed, but had never been in written form, Hochgesang said.

• Approved a maintenance clothing allowance for its custodians, and thus decided to not use a clothing cleaning service.

• Held public hearings for the district’s 2020 capital projects and bus replacement funds and for its upcoming teacher compensation and collective bargaining session. No one from the public had a comment.
