2.The budget for the
Professional Development Plan was approved
at $7627, which is about half of what it had been last year.
3. The board adopted
the recently legislative mandated school district policies as reviewed by
the school's attorney. These changes come just after the student handbooks
had been printed and released to the high school and middle school students.
Significant differences will be provided to the students through announcements
and monthly bulletins, according to H.S. Principal Terry Due.
4) The board approved
declaring certain items as worthless so they could be thrown away. The school
had been accumulating some items for years as they weren't worth the effort
to advertise for bids to sell them. Examples given were specific non-functional
record players, computers, overhead projectors, VCRs, calculators, etc.
Two other items that came up in the discussion which may have some value
(money or sentimental) were: 1) asbestos removal equipment which the school
no longer has anyone certified to use and 2) old band uniforms which have
been in storage for years. Assistant Superintent Craig Creech indicated
Mike Sheehan, a former school employee who had been certified for asbestos
removal, would likely make an offer for that equipment. A band uniform of
each style available was requested for the Newspaper Museum In Collinsville
for display. The other old uniforms will likely be given to the band for
dispersal to anyone who may have an interest. There may also be some old
athletic equipment, but there were legal concerns that someone could get
injured with old euipment (such as a football helmet).
5) The board went into
executive session to discuss hiring decisions. (Results voted on after executive
session are not yet reported.)
