Two More SCR-I Teachers Reveal Retirement Plans

Two more retirement announcements at the February 27 meeting of the Scotland County R-I School Board brought the number of staff vacancies to seven heading into next year.

The board received letters from Ron Alexander and Judy Myers announcing their retirement plans following the completion of the current school year.

Alexander, the building and trades instructor, will be retiring following 22-years of service to the district. Myers will retire with 18 years of service to the district as a special education instructor.

In January the board received three resignations as well as two retirement announcements.

Building Trades House

At a special meeting February 13 committee members Scott Brassfield, Doug Shalley, David Kirkpatrick and Superintendent LeRoy Huff opened the two bids received by the school for the current building trades home.

The committee recommended the board accept the high bid of $92,555 for the purchase of the home. The bid was submitted by Glen and Georganna Lister.

NEMO-Net Calendar

The NEMO-Net Council met February 9 and approved a calendar for the network schools for the 2004-05 school year.

The first day of school will be August 19. Christmas Break will run from December 20 through January 2. Spring Break will be March 25-28. The last day of school, barring no more than three snow days, will be May 18.

The school board voted 7-0 to accept the calendar as presented.

Technology Plan

SCR-I Technology Director Jim Morgan presented the schools technology plan for 2005-07. The plan is required to be submitted to DESE by the end of March.

Principals

The board received the superintendents reviews of the high school and elementary school principal during executive session. Mr. Moore and Mr. Shalley were thanked for their years of service to the district.

Funding Update

On February 16 board members George Koontz, Paul Campbell and Kirkpatrick along with Huff attended the Kids First Rally in Jefferson City to discuss school funding with the governor and members of the legislature.

Since current funding continues to be in a state of chaos, with respect to monies we receive from Jefferson City, all schools in Missouri have been asked to adopt a common resolution asking for relief from the lack of financial support for education at the state level, Huff stated.

The board voted 7-0 to adopt a resolution that stated, in part, that the SCR-I board strongly encourages the Governor and the Missouri General Assembly to take whatever actions are necessary to obtain additional monies for the FY05 budget. Flat or decreased allocations for K-12 public education are hurtful to Missouris 900,000 public school children and are unacceptable particularly in times which schools are required to meet increasingly difficult student performance standards.
