In Brief: Northville School Board Recalls Teachers, Approves Policy Change
Here are a few of the items discussed Tuesday night at the school board's meeting.
Sexual orientation added to non-discrimination policy
In addition to language that prohibits various types of discrimination – on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, religion, height, weight, marital status, handicap or disability – the new policy will add sexual orientation to that list. The change was unanimously approved.
The district approved two other policy changes, one regarding legal services and another regarding conflicts of interests for administrators.
Teachers, paraprofessionals recalled
At that time, there was uncertainty about some of the positions. And since then several teachers volunteered to go part-time or declined being recalled, director of human resources David Rodgers told the board.
The following teachers', some of whom were previously partial recalls, FTEs were increased to full-time status:
- Jeffrey Balagna
- Kathryn Colaluca
- Sarah Debien
- Catherine Gibson
- Catherine Pinkelman
- Shannon Torres
Other teacher recalls include:
- Tara Fortino
- Jennifer Hart
- Beth Richert
- Joseph Rohroff
- Candace Stafiej
- Constance Wall
Recalled paraprofessionals, who were laid off in June, are:
- Mary Clough
- Roxanne Edge
- Tamara Patterson
- Kiersten Plymale
- William Reynolds
One paraprofessional resigned, declining the recall and another remains laid off.
