The Carter County School Board met last Tuesday, October 12, to discuss the stipend for the new high school wrestling and fishing coaching positions and the renovation plan for all school buildings. While they did not specify the exact amount of the stipends, they did say they were comparable to the amounts provided by neighboring districts.
“We looked at stipends for other coaching positions and set the compensation accordingly with the other positions,” said Ryan Tomolonis, Director of Personnel.
The Board of Directors went over some of the details of the stipends and what they had planned in the budget. This means the individuals in these positions could have compensation for this year, as they are already active positions.
They also plan on looking at the stipends for all coaching positions and adjusting them. This would take effect in the next school year.
The other topic discussed was a plan for the renovation project of all school buildings. They discussed where they are in the process and what that will look like as this project proceeds. This would be to update and repair the heat, ventilation and air conditioning units.
They anticipate starting renovations in the summer of 2022.
