At the Crestview Board of Education meeting held on Monday, a number of new staff were hired.
The following were given one-year extensions by the board:
Dylan Hicks will start working as a High School Intervention Specialist at the start of the 2023–2024 academic year.
Beginning with the 2023–2024 academic year, Kate Kroeger will teach language arts in high school.
For the 2023–2024 academic year, Lindsay Maas will serve as a paraprofessional, and Madison Danylchuk will begin working in the food service industry.
Krystal McCollum will work in the food service industry starting in the 2023–2024 academic year.
Diane Myers will start working as a custodian at the start of the 2023–2024 academic year.
The high school principal Dave Bowen also spoke to the board about the consequences of Leipsic and Ada’s leaving for the Northwest Conference.
For the 2024–25 academic year, both institutions are joining the Blanchard Valley Conference. They do plan to compete in the NWC in the academic year 2023–2024.
If replacements are not found before then, the Northwest Conference will be reduced to seven league schools.
With only six colleges participating, there will only be five games in the football season.
“It’s difficult. That is unquestionably true. Again, there are many good things about our league, and we’re working together and collectively to showcase them. Our league is quite competitive. Many of our teams also advance to state competitions. The intriguing thing about the Northwest Conference is merely how the parity produces various teams at different periods.
Three institutions have had conversations about joining the NWC.
At this time, two people have declined the invitation, and one is giving it serious consideration, which excites us, according to Bowen.
According to Bowen, delegates from league schools want to meet on June 26.
