The board voted to hire Rebecca Schaeffer as the school nurse on the step one pro-rated salary of $35,000 effective November 2, 2009. Adrienne Bonner was approved as a substitute teacher for the remainder of the current school year. Sharon Shealer and Christina Graver were appointed Records Retention Officers for CCTI for the 2009-2010 school year.
