Marshall, Owen receive raises from school board

SoVaNow.com / June 13, 2013


The Halifax County School Board gave two administrators raises and made changes to its organizational structure at its monthly meeting this week.

The board:

Raised the salary of Director of Secondary Education Frosty Owens by $10,000 for taking on the additional duties of student services.

Raised the salary of Assistant Superintendent Valdivia Marshall, who had previously held the title of executive director of administration, by $5,000 in additional pay from federal funds.

Both motions passed 4-3 with Trustees Walter Potts, Faye Satterfield and Karen Hopkins voting against the hikes. Chairman Kim Farson was absent.

The board also restructured the division’s organization. In the new plan, Finance Director Jay Camp reports to Marshall rather than School Superintendent Dr. Merle Herndon. Otherwise, the hierarchy retains the practice of department directors reporting to Marshall and principals reporting to Herndon.

In other action, the board:

Named Marliss Barczak principal of Meadville Elementary, where she had been interim principal since last September. Her appointment was unanimous.

Named Stephanie Watts associate principal of Cluster Springs Elementary School

Placed Vince Newton, interim associate principal of the middle school; Chris Lacks, associate principal at South Boston Elementary, and Pedro Zamora, assistant principal of the high school, back on 12-month contracts.

The board also:

Continued the $3,000 stipend to Dennis Seamster to oversee Alternative Education. Potts voted in opposition.

Unanimously named Jeff Davis director of special education, a title change from supervisor of special education.

Agreed unanimously to reconsider the salary of sign language interpreter Amber Shaeffer and place her on the teacher scale.
