The board also authorized a contract with the Educational Service Center of Lake Erie West for the services of Jason Smith as director of curriculum, testing, and intervention services, effective Oct. 1 through Aug. 15, 2013.

The cost is $105,912.49 and includes pension, insurance, and Medicare and workers' compensation insurance premiums.
