The Randolph County Board of Education will consider a recommendation today from Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Phares to post positions for athletic directors at four county schools.
When the board conducted reduction in force and transfer moves earlier this year, members considered hiring one athletic director to oversee all county schools. However, the board had made no final decision, and is now taking a look at a different plan.
During the personnel section, the board will consider posting a quarter-time athletic director at Elkins High School, Elkins Middle School and Tygarts Valley High/Middle School. Phares said the person hired will work one period each day doing athletic director duties and will be paid a $9,000 salary supplement.
A fourth position will be posted at Harman School for basketball season. That person will be paid a $3,000 supplement.
"This is the schools' principals recommendation," Phares said. "It will be a supplemental position at each school for one period a day. The supplement is for the afternoon duties."
Principals David Fincham, Steve Wamsley, Tammie Daniels and Rich Carr will make presentations before the board votes.
