DIXFIELD — The Regional School Unit 10 board made four appointments Monday night.

Hired were the following:

• Tony Orlando, music teacher, Dirigo Elementary School;

• Linda Woods, special education educational technician, Mountain Valley Middle School; and

The board also announced that a drug-sniffing dog will search the Dixfield, Rumford and Buckfield high schools occasionally without notice. The school district and local police departments agreed the searches are needed.
