Employees involved with after-school program to receive supplemental pay
By William Kincaid
COLDWATER - Elementary Principal Molly Hay will receive an additional $3,500 this school year for her role as director of Cav Club, Coldwater's after-school math and reading intervention program.
During a special school board meeting Tuesday morning, board members approved Hay's supplemental pay, as well as the pay rates for other school employees involved with the Cav Club.
Treasurer Sherry Shaffer said elementary guidance counselor Sue Bills and first-grade teacher Nikki Mescher will both earn $22 an hour as coordinators of the program. Also those teachers assisting with Cav Club will earn $20 an hour, while aides will earn $9.50 an hour and student workers will earn $6.85 an hour.
All supplemental pay will come from the school's recently obtained $200,000 Twenty First Century Community Learning Center grant. The five-year grant will provide the school $200,000 the first three years, $150,000 the fourth year and $100,000 the fifth year, according to Hay.
The Cav Club primarily provides math and reading intervention to any students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
The program, which begins on Sept. 30, is a first-come, first-serve basis, and includes a $1 a day fee for supplemental materials that are not covered by the grant.
