DELPHOS — The resignations of the Jefferson head and one assistant football coach were accepted at Monday’s Delphos City Schools Board of Education meeting.

Larry “Bub” Lindeman and Ben Rahrig submitted their intentions on Monday. Lindeman leaves the post with a 30-21 record. The Jefferson gridders were 9-2 this season with a shared NWC title.

Superintendent Kevin Wolfe announced the district has applied for a Straight A Grant through the state. Teacher Missy McClurg wrote the grant for $347,480 in hopes to purchase laptops or tablets for students in grade 7-12.

“They are only giving away $100,000,000 this year and I’m sure some of the bigger districts will be asking for quite a bit more than we are,” Wolfe said. “The parameters include the grant be unique and creative; use technology; save the district money; and be sustainable for five years.”

Wolfe also announced a $400 donation from Delphos American Legion Post 268 and he is now on Twitter and will tweet about happenings in the Delphos City Schools. Follow him on Twitter: @SuptWolfe.

A half-time English as a Second Language teacher has been hired. Jaclene Miller is working with four students in the district whose first language is Spanish.

E. Lee construction will soon begin to repair the brick face and lentils on the west side of the middle school building along with some sealing work on that side as well.

“They had said they would be ready to start work on that before Thanksgiving so I look for them to start any time,” Treasurer Brad Rostorfer said.

In other business, the board:

• Approved the policy for the new Principal Evaluation Procedure;

• Approved John Edinger as junior high wrestling coach for the 2013-14 season; and

• Accepted the resignation of junior varsity baseball coach Jon Kroeger.
