In a story sourced from Dubois County Free Press:
The southwest Dubois county school board met for their regular monthly meeting Thursday night.
Mike Eineman sat in for Superintendent Terry Enlow who is on leave. He is expected back on April 1.
The board approved Eineman’s resignation as principal of Southridge High School. His resignation is effective April 15, the same day his contract as superintendent begins.
The board also approved a 38 1/2 month superintendent contract. According to the contract, Eineman will be paid $102,500 per year, but that amount will be reduced to $98,500 per year until he moves inside the school district.
Southridge Assistant Principal Kelly Murphy will finish the school year as the interim principal when Eineman takes over as superintendent.
The board heard an update on the construction at the School, which are drawing to a close. Eineman thinks things are a lot better from a noise standpoint, saying, “…people are amazed at how nice it is right now.”
The board also heard that the Raider bus had mechanical problem while transporting the softball team to Paoli. A brake drum locked up but was repaired in Paoli while the game was being played.
The board approved the solicitation of estimates from the architectural firm Fanning Howey to repair the east wall of the pool or expand the pool area to accommodate a diving well.
And, finally, it was announced that Southridge Middle School has raised over $3,700 for Riley Hospital for Children. The school is one of 14 schools in Indiana listed on a plaque in recognition of the generosity at the hospital. The middle school has raised a total of over $20,000 during the past four years for Riley Hospital.
