The Ontario Local Schools Board of Education approved the realignment of the district's administrative staff at their regualr meeting Tuesday evening.

Supt. Lisa Carmichael said the revised administrative organization is a cost saving measure for the district. 

"We're going to see a $150,000 savings annually with the realignment of the administrative staff and shuffling some duties to other administrators," Carmichael said.

 In other business the board approved the hiring of Pat Duffner as Director of Transportation effective Jan. 1, 2013 and the hiring of Brad Swain as Director of Maintenance effective Jan. 1, 2013.
 

Duffner replaces the former transportation director Brian Rogers who resigned Oct. 31 citing personal reasons.
 

Rogers was placed on paid administrative leave in August after being found in possession of six handguns on school property and two ankle holsters and four in his car.

Richland County prosecutors declined to pursue felony charges against Rogers citing a section of state law which states a bus garage is not a school building because no students are there.
 

No misdemeanor charges were filed and the case was closed.

Carmichael said an unannounced canine search was conducted by several officers from the Ontario Police Department at the high school a couple of weeks ago.

Carmichael said no drugs were found and she's proud of all the students.
