The Butler Area School District is hiring an outside contractor to handle communications and district branding.
During a school board meeting on Monday, Dr. Brian White recommended that the board hire Kara Droney of KD Communications as the district’s Communications Coordinator. Duties of the position include website improvement and some grant writing, as well as digital, print and social media efforts.
Droney will be paid a per hour rate of $53 for time not to exceed 32 hours per week. Droney will not be an employee of the district and fills a position that has been vacant for years in the district. As a contractor, she will not receive district benefits.
White worked with Droney in a similar capacity in his previous position at Chartiers Valley School District.
White said Droney will help share information and positive stories about the district and its students, stating that there is a lot of good happening at Butler, but no one outside the district knows about it.
