Sperling, who has held the job of dean of students in Verndale during the 2009-10 school year, will step into his new position July 1.

In other personnel moves, the board granted tenure to Kali Matthiesen (elementary education, 5-8 science), Sara Ross (elementary education K-6, birth-grade 3), Gena Sperling (elementary education K-6) and Shalom Ziegler (5-12 health/K-12 physical education, adaptive physical education).

The board also approved superintendent Paul Brownlow's recommendations to offer 2010-2011 contracts to non-tenured teachers Stephanie Brownlow, Edward Holmes, Katie Zacharias, Samantha Martin and Jedediah Carlson.

The board did not grant Sheyanne Sebek's request for a one-year extension of her present family leave. Sebek is an elementary education teacher in the district.

Dan Johnson, Nicole Bart and Nathan Runyan will join director Greg Johnson in running Verndale's summer recreation program.
