The Warwick Valley School District board of education officially approved the hiring of new teachers to the district at a special meeting held on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Leach, since it is now approximately 30 days until the start of the coming school year, teachers currently employed elsewhere are able to give their contractually mandated 30 days notice to their present districts, before starting to teach at WV schools.

One such new hire, Jereme Safier, who will be joining the high school as a Special Education teacher in September, was in attendance at the special meeting and welcomed by the BOE.

Other business

Capital projects to maintain buildings and grounds are ongoing: the BOE gave its assent to a change order to paving work being done at the high school.

“The back of the high school pavement is soft, because of clay (in the soil underneath)…” Tim Holmes, Assistant Superintendent for Business said: “(some of the contractor’s) equipment sank,” a little, requiring a change to the composition of the material to be used for paving the parking lot.

Holmes said that “a five percent mixture” of material containing existing asphalt will be laid as a base for stability. He added that “all pavement will be tested” to ensure stability.

While this mixture was not in the engineer’s original plan, Holmes said that the clay became an issue.

Next: Monday, Aug. 26, High School Media Center (regular meeting/work session), 7 p.m.
