Other personnel matters considered by the board Tuesday included:
*School Food Service, New Hire: Jeanette Cunningham, Independence Elementary.
*Leaves: Julie Wagner, Office Assistant at Central Office; Carol Turner, Bus Driver.
*Resignations: John McMillon, Ag Teacher at Sumner High School.
*Retirements: Sheila Imbornone, Teacher at Independence High; Patricia Steib, IEP Facilitator at Special Services Center; and Iia Cascio, Speech Therapist at Special Services Center.
