'Innovative Programs' Head Hired in FH
Marion Carolan tapped to coordinate anti-bullying programs as well as other initiatives
When school starts in Fair Haven this September, students will see some familiar and new faces in the classroom and around the halls.
One of those new faces will be that of Marion Carolan, the new district-wide “supervisor of innovative programs,” including anti-bullying program administration.
A resolution approving Carolan’s appointment, at an annual salary of $80,000 for the 2012-13 school year, was sanctioned by the Board of Education at its July 26 meeting.
Under the title, Carolan will serve as the anti-bullying coordinator for the entire district. She also will “be responsible for the gifted/talented program (making it bigger), support the staff in innovative instruction and teacher training, and strengthen and improve all special offerings during lunch and recess, such as the Stock Market Club, which is something that starts out strong, but interest dwindles away,” Fair Haven Schools Superintendent Kalthleen Cronin said.
Teachers also were hired as temporary replacements and new hires for the coming year.
Kelly Consentino will be back in the district as a replacement teacher for Kerri Campanella, who will be going on maternity leave, under a contract sanctioned by the Board of Education spanning from Sept. 1, 2012 to April 9, 2013. Consentino will make a pro-rated salary of $49,787 for that period.
Campanella, at the April 25 board meeting, was one of 68 tenured teachers/staff for the 2012-13 year at an annual salary of $51,777.
In addition to Consentino, there were eight other teachers/staff members appointed in new, temporary replacement or part-time district jobs.
Donna Francis was hired as a replacement teacher for Kimberly Kampe effective Sept. 1 through Feb. 18, 2013, at a pro-rated salary of $49,787. Kampe was contracted as a tenured teacher for the year 2012-13 at an annual salary of $55,177.
Genie Iovino was hired as a replacement teacher for Tara Mattison from Sept. 4 to Nov. 20 at a pro-rated salary of $49,787. Mattison was rehired in April along with the other 67 tenured teachers for the 2012-13 school year at a salary of $54,282.
A new health and physical education teacher, Kevin Lydon, was hired for the 2012-13 school year at $54,027 a year.
Two special education teachers were hired for 2012-13: Stephanie Haran, at a salary of $51,392; and Domenica Oliveira, at a salary of $52,187.
The following teachers were hired part-time for the coming school year: Annie McCarthy, health and physical education at $40,327; Maria Caffrey, literacy, at a salary of $9,764; Christyn Glover, at $24,894.
Cronin’s contract was also approved for the next five years, from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2017, at an annual salary of $145,000.
