HONESDALE – The Wayne Highlands Board of Education has voted to extend the contract of Assistant Superintendent Timothy Morgan for another five-year term.

It will begin July 1, 2017, and run through June 30, 2022.

Details of the contract have not been released, as the district has until June 30, 2017, to work them out, said Superintendent Greg Frigoletto.

The vote was unanimous.

“Tim Morgan has been a tremendous asset,” Frigoletto said.

The superintendent noted Morgan is highly skilled at implementing curriculum and works hands-on with teachers and staff.

“He is very invested in Wayne Highlands, is extremely visible and is a great leader,” Frigoletto said.

In an unrelated matter, the district has received a $169,000 grant to be used for renovations of the tennis courts at the Daniel J. O'Neill School and Community Sports Complex.

The grant was administered through the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which allocates money for planning, acquisition, development, rehabilitation and repair of greenways, recreational trails, open space, parks and beautification projects using the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program.

Also, on Tuesday night the board held its yearly organization meeting.

School director Lothar Holbert was named president and director Robert Diehl Jr. vice president.

Other board members are George Korb, Thomas Fasshauer, Gina Pritchard, Heather Stephens, Kathleen Grandjean, John Lowe and Thomas Dirlam.

Frigoletto commended the board members for their dedication and said he looked forward to working with them next year.

Holbert noted how the board is a cohesive group that works together for the betterment of the district.

Board members also decided that starting in January the regular public meetings will be held at 7 p.m the third Tuesday of each month.
