The agenda for the first Delaware Board of Education meeting of the 2015-16 school year will include a number of proposed staffing changes.

The board meets at 6:30 p.m. today at the district’s Technology Center, 621 Pennsylvania Ave.

The board will consider accepting the resignations of a number of staff members, including:

• Mary Kate Kohlhas, a teacher at Woodward Elementary School.

• Joshua Boysei, an educational assistant at Carlisle Elementary School.

• Jennifer Gliebe, an administrative assistant at Hayes High School.

• A number of cooks/cashiers at schools throughout the district.

• Renee Cook, a library media specialist.

The board will also consider approving the employment of a number of staff members, including:

• Jennifer Jackson, an administrative assistant in guidance at Willis Intermediate School.

• Rachel Jordan, a part-time physical-education teacher at Willis.

• Kaitlyn Frish, a teacher at Woodward.

• Educational assistants, a technology specialist, cooks/cashiers, custodians and various other positions.

The board will consider approving 10 classified substitutes for the 2015-16 school year, as well as bus routes.

The board will also consider approving 29 supplemental contracts for the 2015-16 school year, including those of many athletic staff members.
