DELPHOS — Area contractors will pick up bid sheets for a Jefferson High School roofing project today in the Administrative Building.
Delphos City Schools Board of Education approved Treasurer Brad Rostorfer to seek bids for the project to be completed this summer.
Rostorfer said representatives from Carlisle SynTec performed a scan on the roof and found several places that had retained moisture. Carlisle recommended those places be removed and patched and then a fleece-backed roofing material be used to cover the entire roof. This will save the district a considerable amount of money, according to Carlisle.
Rostorfer said the main bid will include this process and a secondary bid will include tearing the entire existing roof off and replacing it. He added that both options come with a warranty.
The existing roof was installed in 1991 and is seven years out of warranty. Permanent Improvement Funds will be used for the project.
The school board was provided a preliminary list of 75 seniors set to graduate at 9 a.m. June 1 in the Jefferson Middle School Auditorium. All seniors will need to meet the requirements of Delphos City Schools and the State of Ohio.
Superintendent Frank Sukup announced High School Principal John Edinger received the Ohio Graduation Test results. This year’s sophomores scored as follows: Reading - 91 percent; Writing - 91 percent; Math - 94 percent; Social Studies - 91 percent; and Science - 88 percent. A 75 percent is needed in each category for the district’s passing score. Sukup noted Edinger was very pleased with the results and they showed an improvement from last year.
The school board issued the following teaching contracts: Donna German and Heather Brickner — continuing; Kathy Ulrich, Jamie Lewis, Amos Place, Anne Byrne, Brandon Benfeldt, Josiah Stober and Nicole Tobe — 3 year; Christine A. Grothaus and Heather Patrick — 2 year; and Margie Miller and Kory Zenz — 1 year.
Ticket prices were also submitted by the athletic department and approved by the board. Gate tickets for football and boys basketball will be $6; adult presale football and boys basketball and gate for volleyball and girls basketball will be $5; student presale for football and boys basketball and gate for volleyball and girls basketball will be $4; adult junior high football, basketball and volleyball are $3; student junior high football, basketball and volleyball — $2; adult ticket packs are $20 and are good for any home event; and student ticket packs are $15 and are good at any home event, including for adults at junior high events.
The board established a supplemental position for assistant golf coach to be paid $550 and be issued only if the participation numbers are at a level to merit a junior varsity team. Currently, there are 18 golfers signed up and an assistant coach will be needed. The board decided the number of participants that will require an assistant is 13.
In the Superintendent’s Report, Sukup announced the year’s productivity on Race to the Top was coming to a close and FFA member Wes Roby placed first in the the State of Ohio in Landscape Management at the FFA Convention.
In other business, the board:
• Named Rostorfer as its designee to attend the mandated Certified Public Records Training scheduled in Delaware on July 26;
• Approved a resolution for membership to the OHSAA for all athletics offered by the school for grades 7-12;
• Accepted the supplemental resignation of Vera White as freshman class advisor;
• Accepted the retirement resignation of Norbert Renner as middle school maintenance/custodian as of Aug. 30. Renner has been with the district for 16 years; and
