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.)
