Appointments to five of the six were approved by the Board of Education at its Tuesday meeting.
Superintendent Dr. Michael Rossi said the district still was working on selecting a Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts/World Language, and that the process would be complete next week.
The appointments, listed on the agenda, were approved unanimously per the recommendation of the superintendent, effective July 1, for the 2012-2013 school year:
- Mark DeBiasse — Supervisor of Humanities 6-12 — $118,500
- Thomas Paterson — Supervisor of Science and Technology Education — $109,999
- Kathryn Lemerich — Supervisor of Mathematics and Business Education — $90,000
- Janine Loconsolo — Supervisor of Elementary Education K-5 — $90,000
- Christopher Kenny — Supervisor of Special Education — $116,500
The seven department supervisor positions at are being abolished at the end of June and the new supervisor positions, created to encompass all grades, are being established in their place.
Rossi has said the change is "cost neutral" and will expand curriculum supervision at the elementary and junior school levels. It also will position the district to have teachers evaluated by supervisors who work outside their buildings, which the district anticipates eventually will be mandated by the state, he said.
Under the plan, the high school department supervisors would return to their teaching duties full time next school year.
