A new teachers’ contract was approved and a school building was sold by the Edison Local Board of Education at its Sept. 10 meeting.
The two-year contract with the Edison Local Education Association includes no salary increases and the same health care coverage and premiums with Medical Mutual.
According to Edison Local District Treasurer Dennis Menoski, monthly premiums will remain at $55 for single family coverage and $95 for a family plan. The contract was previously ratified by the Edison Local Education Association which represents the certificated employees of the school district.
The Board also voted to accept the highest bid of $130,000 from Four Seasons Ministries of Steubenville for the sale of Pleasant Hill school building in Pleasant Hill. Four bids were received by the bidding deadline, Menoski said.
Upon a recommendation of School Supt. William (Bill) Beatty, the Board adjusted fees for records requests after a student graduates. A new $5 fee is to be charged for transcripts after the first two years. Also no birth certificates and immunization records will be provided.
