Both the Dallas and Lake-Lehman School Boards held reorganization meetings last week.
At the Dallas School Board reorganization meeting on Dec. 3, Dr. Richard Coslett was elected president, Dr. Bruce Goeringer vice president and Colleen Slocum assistant secretary. Larry Schuler was appointed representative to the West Side Career and Technology Center Joint Operating committee.
The board also heard another report from Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates Architects on a feasibility study being conducted to determine what steps should be taken at Dallas Elementary School. The school, built in 1972, was not intended as a permanent building and has developed recurring problems over the years.
The study is intended to give the board a full set of options, including renovations, partial replacement or full replacement. Another report is expected at the board's regular meeting on Dec. 10.
Mark Kornoski was reelected president by one vote over Andrew Salko. Walter Glogowski was named first vice president and Dr. Kevin Carey was elected second vice president. The treasurer's position was left to be filled at a later meeting.
The following committee chairpersons were appointed: curriculum and instruction; David Paulauskas, athletic and activities; James Welby, buildings and grounds; Richard Bombick, transportation; Karen Masters, support services; Glogowski, finance.
Masters was appointed as representative to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association and Glogowski was named as an alternate. Paulauskas was appointed to the Joint Operating Committee that runs the West Side Career and Technology Center for a term that runs to 2015. The JOC is comprised of members from the five school boards of member districts at West Side CTC.
The board moved regular meetings from the third Monday of each month to the second Monday of each mother.
Welby asked if three meetings scheduled at the elementary schools were necessary. He said the facilities are not the same and that it proves an inconvenience to set up. Superintendent James McGovern said the meetings are held at that location to showcase the schools to board members and make it easer for nearby residents to attend a meeting. No final decision was made.
The next meeting of the Lake-Lehman School Board will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec. 17 in the high school library.
