The Bethel Park School Board will hold a special meeting at 8 p.m. Dec. 5 to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of board member Ron Sustich.

The board is accepting resumes from community members wishing to fill the vacancy. Interested applicants should email their resume and cover letter to the superintendent and board, schoolboard@bpsd.org, by 4 p.m. Dec. 2. The resume and cover letter should contain information regarding the applicant’s education, work experience and community involvement.

The person who is appointed to fill the remainder of Sustich’s term will serve through November 2015.

Last week, the board voted to approve a 1.6 percent increase to the annual salaries for three members of the district administration. The salaries, which are retroactive to July 1, 2013 are: superintendent Nancy Aloi Rose, $140,000; assistant to the superintendent Matthew Howard, $122,703 and director of finance and operations Leonard Corazzi, $96,500.

The board also approved the hiring of Daniel Sloan, as assistant athletic director with a 2013-2014 salary to be prorated upon the annual figure of $37,500. The effective date of the position is to be determined.

Board member Cynthia Buckley said a large focus of the new position will be safety.

Board members approved the district comprehensive plan which will be effective July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017. The plan, which was developed with the input of educators, administrators and members of the community, is available for review on the district’s website, and focuses on long-range goals and targets the growth of student performance, Rose explained.

It has been submitted to the state department of education.
