The Rutland School Board approved the contract for two new employees and changes to three other agreements.
Rutland Superintendent Carl Fahrenwald said Melanie Wollum has been hired as an aide for the kindergarten class. She will assist Kindergarten teacher Barb Meyer. Melissa Behrens has also been hired as high school English teacher.
Casey Krogman will be third-grade teacher for 2013-14. Fahrenwald said Krogman was previously a special education instructor, but the district reduced staff for special education.
Jill Merager, who has been third-grade teacher within the district, will now teach first grade.
Meyer has also been named elementary lead teacher. Kathleen Trower is lead teacher for grades 7-12.
