Changes to the Payroll Procedure were discussed during Wednesday night’s meeting of the Cumberland County Schools Policy Committee. To help ease the workload on Payroll, the committee recommended that new employees of the Cumberland County School system be paid in 24 installments per year and not be offered the option of 20 installments. There are 13 current school employees who will grandfathered in at 20 installments per year.
Richard Janeway was elected Chairman of the Cumberland County Schools Policy Committee Wednesday night. The Policy Committee approved to meet on the first Monday of each month, with meetings beginning at 4:30 p.m. The next Policy Committee will be Monday, November 3rd.
At Wednesday’s Schools Policy Committee meeting it was brought up that some Cumberland County students have dropped out of school, gotten their GED, and have then been hired as substitute teachers. To encourage the county’s youth to stay in school, the Policy Committee is recommending that substitute teachers must be at least 21 years old with a high school diploma or equivalency unless they are currently enrolled or graduated from an accredited college program.
Changes may be coming regarding Cumberland County Schools Sick Leave and Personal Days Polices for non-certified employees. At Wednesday night’s meeting, the Schools Policy Committee was informed that some non-certified employees are using up all their 5 sick days and 5 personal days in a very short time period and then quitting. Given there’s no probationary period, these days are available the moment they are hired. Not only does this create a staffing issue, but it’s costing the school system money. The committee has tabled the matter pending further study.
A Nashville man previously taken into custody for a quick change scam in Crossville now has another theft charge on his police record. On Wednesday the Peavine Road Subway manager reported that on Sunday a man scammed a clerk out of least $50. Crossville police viewed the Subway security video and identified 57 year old Anthony Sylvester Scott, Sr. He is the same man who was named as an accomplice in a similar quick change scam at the Woodmere Exxon in Crossville. In that case Scott and 52 year old Jeffrey Todd Starnes of Nashville scammed the cashier out of $300. Authorities caught up with the pair at a Lenoir City truck stop and they were brought back to Cumberland County. Starnes also faces a felony robbery charge and is due in General Sessions Court on October 27.
