The Community Schools of Frankfort Board of Education approved the amended contract and contract extension for both Superintendent Don DeWeese and Assistant Superintendent Joel McKinney at Tuesday night’s board meeting. Both individuals received a 3.5 percent raise and the same two-year contract extensions.
“I’m ecstatic,” said DeWeese. “I get two more years on my contract and I enjoy working and living in Frankfort. I’m excited to be a part of this outstanding organization for two more years.”
DeWeese said McKinney is an outstanding assistant superintendent as well as an outstanding educator and individual.
“For two more years, Joel is going to continue working with the boys and girls and the families in this community,” said DeWeese.
In other news, the Board named Eric Davis as the new head football coach at Frankfort High School. Davis replaces Joel Sienicki, who resigned after just one season as the coach of the Hot Dogs, which finished 2-8.
“Eric just finished his third year of teaching and head football coach at Tri-County,” said DeWeese. “Prior to that, he has been a head football coach at another school in Indiana. He actually started some of his assistant coaching responsibilities at Frankfort Middle School when he was a youngster. He is a Clinton Prairie graduate.”
The Board also approved the design documents for Phase 2B of the Frankfort High School renovation project. Bid openings for projects in this phase are set for April, while construction is scheduled to start in May. The entire renovation project is scheduled to be completed by August 2018.
