District 25 to hire second psychologist

Apr 3, 2014 - By Alejandra Silva, Staff Writer

Fremont County School District 25 will soon look to fill a new school psychologist position. The board of trustees voted Tuesday to have another psychologist join the one the district already has.

Director of special services and alternative school administrator Dallas Myers requested the addition, noting that the district has for eight years contracted with part-time school psychologists and in the past, contracted with three part-time psychologists.

Superintendent Terry Snyder agreed that hiring another as full-time psychologist would help meet the needs of students and be cost effective.

"We will be far better off financially if we hire one new," Snyder said.

Snyder also recommended the board offer contracts to Misti Motisi as the Riverton Middle School assistant track coach and Scott Robinson as the RMS boys diving coach.

The board also accepted a grant award from the Riverton Chamber of Commerce of $23,750. That amount was requested by the district, was granted in the full amount, and is for next year's hospitality costs for tournaments hosted by the district.

Other agenda items included resignation approval for Riverton High School science teacher Samantha Miller, effective at the end of the 2013-2014 school year. Jeri Lampert, a Rendezvous Elementary school fifth-grade teacher, requested retirement, and resignations were announced by Rendezvous fourth grade teacher Nicholas Hagemann and RMS speech-language pathologist Angie Lupher.

All three were approved, also effective at the end of this school year.

The board was notified of the retirement of special services parent liaison Sue Franks, and Brian Tyler was hired as part-time IDEAL paraprofessional at RMS.
