Crestview School District Brings Back Retired Teacher to Teach Business Classes | News, Sports, Jobs


Sep 7, 2023

COLUMBIANA — Bob Cooper, a longtime teacher at Crestview High School, will continue teaching entrepreneurship classes even after his retirement. The board of education approved his rehiring over the summer. Cooper has 35 years of experience in education, with the last 27 years spent at Crestview. He currently serves as a work study instructor and teaches entrepreneurship classes. According to District Superintendent Daniel Hill, Cooper’s licensure is highly sought after, making it difficult to find someone with his qualifications. The district believes it is beneficial to retain Cooper as a retire/rehire to maintain the momentum he has built in his classes.

In addition to Cooper’s rehiring, the district has also hired a new athletic trainer. Dylan Gorby will serve as the athletic trainer for all winter and spring sports on a supplemental contract that pays $6,000 per season. During the August board of education meeting, Hill commended the band boosters for their successful food stand at the Columbiana County Fair. He stated that the stand was a huge success and received many compliments for the students’ hard work in serving patrons.

Other highlights from the August meeting include the rejection of bids for an athletic field project, a resolution granting permission to the Athletic Director to employ personnel as needed for co-curricular events in the 2023-24 school year, approval of bus routes and stops for the same school year, and the adoption of various handbooks.

Furthermore, the board accepted the resignations of Adam Jones (high school varsity boys head soccer coach), Tony Dolan (high school varsity assistant boys soccer coach), and Valerie Victoria (high school instruction tutor). Supplemental contracts and pupil activity contracts were also approved for various personnel involved in athletic and extracurricular activities.

Additionally, the board hired several non-paid volunteers and approved the hiring of athletic department helpers at an hourly rate. They also established a substitute employee salary schedule for ticket takers and sellers.

Other items approved during the meeting include contracts with the Columbiana County Board of Developmental Disabilities and the Columbiana County ESC, the hiring of sheriff deputies for security, and permission for various school trips.

The next board meeting is scheduled for September 13th at 6 p.m.
