Archbold, OH

Hold Closed Session For Personnel Issues

The Archbold Area School Board held an executive session that lasted nearly an hour and a half during its Monday night, Dec. 15, meeting.

Stated reason for the closeddoor session was to discuss performance evaluations for David Deskins, district superintendent, and Christine Ziegler, district treasurer.

Another stated reason for the session was to discuss “compensation, appointment, promotion or demotion of public employees, as well as pending legal matters.”

Deskins and Ziegler attended the first part of the meeting with school board members, but were later excluded from the talks.

No action was taken when the board returned to open session.

Tony Warncke, who was appointed a member of the board Friday, Nov. 28, was absent from the meeting due to illness. He replaced David Yoder, twoterm board member, who resigned in September.

The board also approved Monday, Jan. 12, 2009, 6:30 pm, as the date and time for the board’s organizational meeting for 2009.

Typically, the board meets on the third Monday of every month, but state law requires the board to hold an organizational meeting before Jan. 15; therefore, the regular meeting date, Jan. 19, won’t qualify.

The regular meeting will be held the same evening following the organizational meeting.- David Pugh
