|The Princeton Board of Education has accepted several resignations from sports-related duties. |
They are: Terry Mayfield as head varsity girls basketball coach and Athletic Director; Chrystal Mayfield as head varsity softball coach, junior high school basketball coach, and girls summer weights coach; Meredith Ussery as assistant varsity softball coach; and Christy Stockman as varsity football cheer coach.
In other personnel matters, the Princeton Board approved 2 teacher transfers for next school year. Meredith Ussery is moving from 7th grade through freshmen math to 4th through 6th grade language arts next academic year. Toni Powell is transferring from 4th through 6th grade english language arts to 4th through 6th grade social studies.
The Princeton Board has employed Susan Hashman to teach 4th through 6th grade math next school year. She's currently a teacher at Spickard.
Princeton Superintendent, Terry Mayfield, reported the Stacy Center Board of Directors is working with Patty Stark to write a grant application for the installation of new wood flooring at the Stacy Center gymnasium. Mayfield said the Mercer County Recreation Board also indicated it's willing to help with the project, but would like the school district to consider splitting the cost. Each entity would be responsible for 1/3 of the money. The total cost is estimated around $50,000 or about $16,000 to $17,000 for each group.
Superintendent Mayfield said he believes there are 2 other areas which need to be addressed with high priority. The 1st is to repair the roof on the weight and exercise room at the Stacy Center. The 2nd is to repair pot holes in the parking lot and driveway area between the maintenance building and the pre-school building.
The current budget for the Princeton School District allocated $80,000 for facilities improvements. About $27,000 has been spent leaving $53,000 that could be used for the proposed projects.
Among other topics, Superintendent Mayfield gave an update on work in the State Legislature related to school funding.
