ALEXIS -- United School Board members have approved the tentative 2013-14 school calendar.

Students will start classes on Aug. 21 with the first semester ending Dec. 20. Five built-in snow days are included with the following holidays: Labor Day, Veteran's Day, President's Day, Martin Luther King Day and Columbus Day. Final day of classes is scheduled for May 30.

Superintendent Jeff Whitsitt also recommended several personnel actions, which the board approved.

Carrie Boone was named girls' and boys' assistant track coach. Kevin Tyrrell will be volunteer coach for softball. Terry Hepner will be volunteer coach for baseball. A one-year leave was approved for Jennifer Stoneking for 2013-14, and the resignations of Linda Kozelichki as high school cheerleading coach and Diana Jones as head cook at the south campus, both effective at the end of 2012-13 year, were accepted.

Substituted teacher pay also was increased $5 to $80 per day.

The board will next meet at 6:30 p.m. March 13 to tour the older south campus facility. A regular board meeting will follow at 7.
