The Archbold Area School Board adjusted the salary of Tim Meister, Archbold High School Principal, at its Monday night, April 21 meeting,.

The board adjusted administrator salaries in March. At that time, Meister received a pay raise of $1,400, or 1.75%, for the 2007-08 school year.

Other administrators saw salaries increase 2% or more.

At the April meeting, David Deskins, district superintendent, said school officials realized they had used incorrect figures in computing Meister’s salary.

The board decided to give him a raise of $2,300 for the 2007-08 and 2008-09 school years, raises of 2.88% and 2.8%, respectively.

Meister’s salary for 2007- 08 is $82,200; for 2008-09, it’s $84,500.

The action came following an executive session that lasted less than an hour.

The board accepted the resignation of Karen Vonier, school bus driver, because of retirement. A 32-year veteran, she retires June 1.
