The Bellefontaine Board of Education completed their annual evaluations of Superintendent Brad Hall and Treasurer Josh Wasson during the monthly meeting Monday night.

Board President Colin Yoder issued statements on both evaluations.

"The board has given Mr. Hall a positive review for his performance during the '22-'23 school year."

"The board believes Mr. Wasson did a good job managing district finances, however, the board would like Mr. Wasson to improve communication with district teachers, staff, administrators, and the board."

Six local residents addressed the board during public participation.

Three adults and three students spoke in support of recently retired Bellefontaine Middle School SRO (School Resource Officer) Allen Huffman.

They gave examples of how Huffman's service has impacted students and staff.

Huffman has been the SRO for the last seven years. He retired on May 31st.

Superintendent Hall then stated the district plans on having an SRO at the middle school for the upcoming school year.

The City of Bellefontaine is considering legislation on this type of retire/rehire.

In personnel, the board accepted these resignations:

Mark Brunswick - High School Social Studies

Tracy Gregg - Intervention Specialist

Zachary Johnson - Educational Aide

Brunswick taught at BCS for 29 years. He was also a longtime baseball and basketball coach.

Bill Tipple resigned from his original three-year contract as the BCS communications coordinator.

Tipple was then hired to teach TV Production at BHS. He will also continue as the district communications coordinator.

The board hired the following:

Michaela Baker - Kindergarten Teacher

Dawn Spangler - Elementary Guidance Counselor

Alyssa Brown - Educational Aide

Pam Patton - Secretary II (retire/rehire)

Brittany Case - Substitute Custodian

Supplemental contract:

Jenna Smith - Football and Basketball Assistant Cheer Coach

Finally, the board approved the following:

Student fees for the '23-'24 school year ($80 per student, which includes laptop bag, Google license, and device. Any student fees above $80 will be paid from the general fund. Upon successful completion, those students graduating in '22-'25 may be able to purchase their laptops. Those graduating in '26 and beyond may be eligible to receive their laptops at no cost.)
