Board OKs Springfield school hires

New Clark County ESC treasurer begins her part-time position.


The Clark County Educational Services Center Governing Board unanimously approved several hires totaling about $1.3 million in payroll and benefits for Springfield City Schools at a special meeting Thursday.

Dennis Shelton was approved as the district’s Race to the Top facilitator for one year, beginning Aug. 1, for nearly $53,000.

It also hired six academic coaches for a total of nearly $53,000 and 18 other related service personnel totaling more than $1.2 million.

Those hires include academic coaches Rosalyn Bacon, Kay Elam, Brenda Hart, Jalma Fields, Sandra Silverstein and Jacqueline Brown, as well as four occupational therapists, seven occupational therapist assistants, two physical therapists, two physical therapist assistants and a speech therapist, mobility and orientation specialist and clinical psychologist.

The board also approved a list of 85 substitute teachers.

In other news, Pamela Mustovich officially took over as the ESC’s part-time treasurer during the meeting, replacing Matthew Ketcham, who’s been interim treasurer since October 2011.

Mustovich, whose hire was approved by the board in May, retired earlier this year from her post as treasurer of the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center after 14 years.

Mustovich also served as interim treasurer for the Greenon Local School District this year before it hired a permanent treasurer.

She’ll make $39 per hour and work 20 to 25 hours per week, according to Clark County ESC Superintendent Stacia Smith.

The Clark ESC paid Ketcham about $69 per hour through a shared service with the Madison-Champaign ESC, where he remains as treasurer.
