Raises at top approved

Fredonia School District administrators and the superintendent will receive 3.7 percent and 3 percent raises, respectively, retroactive to July 1.

The raises were announced during a meeting of the Fredonia School Board Tuesday night.

Officials listed Superintendent Paul DiFonzo's salary at $133,257 and the administrators' ranging from $75,000 to $103,000 a year.

The administrators will receive 3.7 percent raises each year through June 30, 2013. DiFonzo's pay will be renegotiated next year, although the general terms of the contract have been approved to June 30, 2013.

The board also held a discussion with Ken Schnur of First Student bus lines, asking how the district might be able to economize.

Schnur was asked to provide statistics on the number of students on school buses per run and also asked if bus runs could be consolidated.

On other issues:

* The board will hold a joint public meeting with the Brocton Central School District at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 in the Fredonia High School library to appoint a consultant to conduct a feasibility study of the proposed merger of the two districts.

* The board's next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 28 in the high school library.
