Streetsboro -- Four Streetsboro school administrators received new contracts from the Board of Education at its March 14 meeting.
Randy Tevepaugh, the district's athletic director, now will double as the athletic director and director of buildings and grounds.
Steve Hatch, whose retirement was accepted by the School Board earlier this year, was rehired for the upcoming school year as principal at Streetsboro Middle School, where he is completing his fifth year.
Rayna Antol, who served as director of student services this school year, was rehired for next school year.
Lindsay Zenker, who has been a part-time dean of students at Henry Defer Intermediate School the last two school years, was rehired for the upcoming school year.
All the Board of Education votes were unanimous.
• Tevepaugh will be paid $85,000 a year, according to the School Board agenda. His 5-year contract starts Aug. 1, 2013 and runs through July 31, 2018.
Tevepaugh started in Streetsboro in the 2010-11 school year. His current salary is $63,000.
"He has done an excellent job as athletic director," said Superintendent Dr. Tim Calfee. "His administrative skills are excellent."
"It's a great move," said Andrew Lesak, School Board vice president.
"It's an opportunity to combine positions," School Board President Denise Baba said. "Randy has the skills to handle it."
Tevepaugh assumes the duties of Jim Washinski, whose resignation as buildings and grounds supervisor was accepted Dec. 13 by the School Board.
School Board member Kevin Grimm previously said Washinski provided the Board of Education with a specific reason for his resignation, but Grimm declined to say what the reason was. Grimm said Washinski did not indicate whether he was hired elsewhere, and Grimm said the School Board was not informed that this was a retirement.
Washinski's annual salary when he resigned was $49,055, according to a school document.
• Hatch, under a one-year contract which takes effect Aug. 1, will be paid a salary of $48,000, according to the March 14 School Board agenda. He retired in anticipation of being rehired in a move he said would "save the School Board some money."
Hatch's salary for the 2012-13 school year is $95,417, according to Treasurer Catherine Rouse, who said Hatch also receives an additional $36,136 in benefits, including STRS, Medicare, workers' compensation and a health life flexible spending account this year.
Retiring principals and superintendents can be rehired without the school districts helping to pay for healthcare benefits, thus saving money for the schools, according to school officials.
Hatch is following in the footsteps of many principals and superintendents in Ohio because of changes to the State Teachers Retirement System enacted by the state legislature.
• Antol will be paid $83,000 annually, according to the School Board agenda. Her 2-year contract runs from Aug. 1, 2013 through July 31, 2015.
Antol stepped in as director of student services this school year following the departure last summer of Lisa Shannon, who was Streetsboro's director of student and academic services before accepting a job as director of pupil services for Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools.
Antol started out working three days a week this school year, and that was expanded to five days a week, Calfee said.
• Zenker will be paid a salary of $31,000 a year, according to the School Board agenda. Her contract runs from Aug. 1, 2013 through July 31, 2014.
Zenker said her position is similar to a principal, and she is in charge of discipline at Henry Defer Intermediate School.
She is paid for a half day of work, arriving later in the morning each school day and working through the end of the school day.
"I enjoy the job and the staff," she said. "It's exciting to be able to come back."
