Stephanie Hennon, an elementary teacher, was granted a leave to begin after Nov. 9 and continuing through the end of the current school year. She plans to work on the first in-service day of the 2013-14 school year.

Also at its meeting this week, the board awarded a contract for $59,930.55 to Protech Asphalt Paving Inc. of New Castle. Work will include replacing sections around the elementary and junior-senior high schools.
