New BG superintendent given per diem rate until he officially starts


Bowling Green City Schools will pay its new superintendent a per diem rate of $612.65 per day until he starts Aug. 1.

After a 90-minutes executive session Tuesday, the board agreed to pay Ted Haselman that rate for no more than 20 days between May 26 and July 30.

The board hired Haselman in May and gave him a three-year contract with an annual salary of $155,000.

Also at the special meeting, the board accepted the resignations of Sarah Caserta, high school English teacher, effective Aug. 6; Catherine Wilburn, high school Spanish teacher, effective Aug. 11; Kelsey Hickey, school psychologist, effect Aug. 3; Jodi Anderson, secondary curriculum coordinator, effective Aug. 3; and Christine Kempf, assistant treasurer, effective June 8.

Superintendent Francis Scruci said Caserta “has touched a lot of lives.”

She is moving closer to family, he said.

Anderson is leaving public education for the private sector.

“Those are big shoes to fill,” he said.

The board also employed a number of new staff for the 2023-24 school year, including Daniell Flick, second grade at Conneaut; Kaila Beckrow, school psychologist; Kelley Turk, high school English; Anthony Gutierrez, middle school English; Haley Shope, fourth grade at Kenwood; and James Gee, middle school band.
