Palmerton Area School District has agreed to promote its interim business manager to financial consultant.
The school board, on a 7-1 vote Tuesday, agreed to change the status of Donna Les, retroactive to March 28, 2011, for a maximum of 16 hours a week until June 6, 2011. Director Tina Snyder was opposed. Director Carol Dwyer was absent.
Resident Josann Harry questioned the board on its decision when it already employs business administrator Lisa Vignone, whom she said has plenty of budget experience, on a full-time basis.
