TONTOGANY - After nearly seven years in the district, James Garber will be stepping down.
At Tuesday's School Board meeting, Superintendent Adam Koch announced that Garber, who is currently the principal of the district's elementary school, will be resigning effective Jan. 17, the last day of the semester.
Koch noted that Garber has been with the district for 6 1/2 years "and has done a remarkable job."
Garber was superintendent of the Otsego School District for five years before stepping down 18 months ago to become the elementary school's principal.
He is currently making $85,000 annually in the position.
Koch said after the meeting that the principal's position will be posted on Dec. 2, though he said he will be recommending current elementary assistant principal Betsey Murray for the job next month. The assistant elementary principal job is also to be posted.
In other business, the board:
• Approved an indoor track and field program, at no cost to the board, along with coaches Jen Asmus, Tim Bialecki, and Ryan Hafner.
Koch said the program will serve "as a winter sport kind of to keep in shape for" the spring sports season.
Board Member Elizabeth Gorski noted that "these coaches that are doing this… they're doing this at no compensation."
• Approved a $7,980 Now and Then certification for Apple Computer.
• Recognized October Students of the Month: Freshman Lydia Archambo; Sophomore Olivia Jinnings; Junior Gavin Spilker; and Senior Sadie VanHorn.
• Changed the time of the Dec. 19 board meeting to 5 p.m.
• Went into executive session to discuss the employment of personnel. No action was expected.
