PEMBERVILLE - The Eastwood Board of Education and its classified staff have inked a new three-year agreement.
The board on Monday approved the contract with the Ohio Association of Public School Employees Chapter 736, effective July 1, 2013.
With the new contract, base pay will increase 2.5 percent in the first year and 1.75 percent in each of the following two years.
The terms of the contract are identical to that ratified earlier this summer with its teachers' union, said Superintendent Brent Welker, including health insurance concessions. Staff members now will pay more toward the premium cost as well as the cost of office visits.
He called it "a very good process," at Monday's board of education meeting. "A very amenable and very agreeable process."
Robin Humbarger, union president, could not be reached for comment.
The new contract, which runs from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 is for the district's secretaries, food service workers, bus drivers and custodians.
Also at Monday's meeting, the board approved a two-year contract extension for district Treasurer David Michel, effective Aug. 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2015.
The board also:
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Approved school breakfast and lunch prices for the new school year, with no increases.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Approved the retirement of bus driver Lynda Busdeker effective Sept. 30.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Approved a $600 anonymous donation for the soccer building project.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Approved an agreement with the Wood County Educational Service Center for a building safety and coordinator for Webster School for 2013-14. The cost is $18,114. The person will provide security to the building as well as conduct secretarial and administrative duties. The building will house four preschool classes in the basement, as well as Acadia Nursing Institute on the upper floor.
