Root River program to get new Occupational Therapy services

Fri, Mar 1st, 2013
Posted in Harmony Education

Michelle Breitsprecher, Director of the Root River Program, spoke to the Fillmore Central School Board at their regular meeting on Feb. 26. She stated they had been receiving Occupational Therapy services from Southland for five days a month, but that has ended. They are currently looking at options to acquire services elsewhere. The Autism Specialist they currently have is also an Occupational Therapist, so they have extended her contract for now. They have checked with Stanley Jones and Associates in Rochester, and also Harmony Healthcare in Harmony. Harmony Healthcare is interested in partnering with the school to offer their OT services. Breitsprecher said they are getting quotes right now.


The board approved the resignation of Ryan Scheevel as the Summer Rec. Director. They also approved the resignation of Christina Bothun as the ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) Parent Educator, and Jaslyn Kramer from One Block at a Time daycare.

Additional spring sports coaches were approved. Head coaches had been approved at a previous meeting. David Broadwater will be coaching B-squad baseball, Kyle Rundquist 8th grade baseball, and John Holger 7th grade baseball. For softball, Mensink said there are good numbers this year, with 16 signed up for grades 9-12. Travis Malley was approved for 8th grade softball, and Jessie Powell for 7th grade softball. Aaron Mensink will coach Junior High boys golf.

The board approved an open enrollment request for a student living in Wykoff. Jackie Whitacre was also approved as the spring play director.
