LEHMAN TWP. — Lake-Lehman school board members rescinded their vote from 2012 to promote Sandra Dobrowolski to the position of transportation supervisor, an administrative position, at Monday night’s meeting. An arbitrator has already ruled that Dobrowolski must be put back into her original position and salary after a union grievance was filed.
The board also rescinded the motion in 2012 which revised the job description for the position of transportation supervisor.
According to Board President Mark Kornoski, a union grievance was filed against the motions which resulted in the promotion of Dobrowolski to the position of administrator. “The arbitrator ruled against us,” he said. “We must put her back to her original salary per contract.”
Board member Richard Bombick voted against rescinding both motions. Board member Andrew Salko voted against rescinding the revision of the job description. The other seven board members present voted in favor of rescinding both motions. Bombick refused comment after the meeting.
The board also tabled two items which would renew their contract with DeHey McAndrew, LLC for services related to the administration of the district’s 403(B) employee retirement savings plans and section 125 employee benefit plans.
Kornoski said the board is “looking into other options.”
In other business, the board appointed Christopher Gerlin as indoor percussion advisor while accepting with regret the resignation of David Gambal, the previous advisor.
The board also hired Matthew Duffy as a secondary social studies teacher.
Unlike previous years in which the board met at different campuses during the year, next year’s board meetings will all be held in the library of the Junior-Senior High School. The board will meet on second Mondays except for the June, July, August and December meetings which will be held on third Mondays.
