Glasgow’s new superintendent of schools, Bob Connors, was welcomed at the Glasgow School Board meeting on July 11. He started July 1 and has been busy ever since. He has already gone through all the school buildings with Ryan Stone, maintenance coordinator, to familiarize himself with the schools, see the problems that need to be fixed and also all the progress already made.
“I would like to thank you for welcoming me. I am delighted to be back home,” said Connors, who is a native of Glasgow.
The school board had more than one meeting this past week. The first, starting at 4:30 p.m., was the Building Committee meeting, while the other at 6 p.m. was the regular school board meeting.
One of the biggest issues at the building meeting was the topic of R.L Irle Elementary and what to do with it. Stone brought in a sample of one of the rotten pipes within the school. He identified the pipe to be the floor drain of the upstairs girl's bathroom.
The board also discussed what to do with the lots next to Glasgow High School. It has still not been decided whether they are going to build teacher housing or save the lots to build another school. They have many choices on the usage of those lots.
In the regular school board meeting they accepted math teacher Cory Johnston's resignation from the high school. He has accepted a job teaching and coaching in Ronan. They also approved of the hiring of Theresa Kolar as the Irle School's special education teacher, Jennifer Hausauer as the Irle and 7/8 counselor, Stephen Babcock as the 7-12 math teacher, Ann Roberts as the high school cheer coach, and all of the high school's extra-curricular fall coaches.
