·1 min read

Aug. 4—FAIRBORN — The Fairborn school district plans to make a central office change, switching the job title of an administrator to assistant superintendent.

The Fairborn board of education is set tonight to consider a plan involving Amy Gayheart, the district's classified personnel/educational services director, according to records.

Gayheart has worked in Fairborn schools for more than 20 years and served as acting superintendent while Superintendent Gene Lolli took a leave of absence earlier this year due to surgery for kidney cancer.

The school board is set to vote on a four-year contract with an annual salary of $136,536 starting this month for Amy Gayheart, who would be responsible for overseeing three central office departments and three supervisors, district records show.

Those reporting directly to the assistant superintendent would be the directors of: certified human resources and student services; curriculum and instruction; and business operations and facilities and construction, according to documents.

The job would also oversee supervisors of maintenance, transportation and food service, records show.

In her current role, Gayheart is responsible for: facility use, classified personnel, food service, workers compensation, transportation and the Fairborn Digital Academy, the district's website states.

She earned a bachelor's degree from Wright State University.

The board is set to meet at 5:30 p.m. tonight in the media center at Fairborn High School, 900 E. Dayton Yellow Springs Road.
