STEUBENVILLE - The final meeting of the year for the city school board centered on personnel issues and plans for the January re-organizational meeting.

The board also accepted Brittany Falbo's resignation as girls head soccer coach and approved maternity leave for Falbo, who is a science teacher at the high school.

Maternity leave also was approved for Heather Davis, who is a teacher at Wells Academy.

In other personnel moves, Kirsten Curran was hired as a lifeguard for the high school natatorium, and Alexis Carroll, Joseph DuBois and Angelica Yetts were approved as cafeteria workers.

Superintendent Mike McVey reported the city school district has received $1,000 from the Wal-Mart Foundation and an additional $1,000 donation from Wheeling-Nisshin.

The board also approved unanimously:
