SCR-I School Board To Sell Surplus Property
The Scotland County R-I Board met in regular session on Thursday, January 19th, 2006 at 6:30 p.m. in the elementary art room with seven members present.
Pepsi-Cola of Memphis recently replaced the two scoreboards in the SCR-I High School gym.
“The old ones are needing to be disposed of,” Shalley told the board. “We also have replaced some computer carts that are a storage problem. According to board policy we need to declare the old scoreboards and computer carts surplus so we can advertise them for sale.”
The Board voted 7-0 to declare these items surplus. The two scoreboards and the carts will be advertised locally for sale and sealed bids will be accepted.
MSBA Policy Service
The Board received the annual assessment from the Missouri School Board Association (MSBA) for the Policy Manual Maintenance Service. The assessment was in the amount of $1,613.
This service includes the updating of policies, procedures, and forms to meet the requirements of any new legislation.
The Board voted 7-0 to approve payment of the assessment.
The Board voted 7-0 to reschedule the February Board meeting for Thursday February 16th at 6:00 p.m. to avoid a conflict with the annual M.A.R.E. Conference.
Beginning in March, the regular board meetings will be on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
NEMO NET Grant
Superintendent Dave Shalley informed the board that the NEMO NET board had received final word that the group had been turned down for the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) grant to update the members’ ITV rooms.
“We currently are faced with the decision of whether to apply for the grant again next year or not,” Shalley stated. “The grant is a 50-50 match so this will require some local money. If we receive the grant this would enable us to create an open network and open up possibilities for our students.”
The Board voted 7-0 to pursue the RUS grant again next year. Shalley will take the school’s decision to the NEMO Net board, where the final decision will be made network wide on whether or not to pursue the grant.
High School Principal Ken Cross presented the Local Wellness Policy to the board for their review. The policy was developed by the local wellness committee in conjunction with MSBA to meet the required guidelines adopted by law. This policy will need to be in effect July 1, 2006. This item was for discussion purposes only and required no action at this time.
Overnight Trip Request
Marie Brown presented a request for an overnight trip for the Pom Pon squad. The Poms will be performing in Tuscola, IL on February 3rd. The Board voted 7-0 to approve the request.
In Executive session the Board voted 7-0 to make the following coaching assignments:
Golf – Jason Hannam; Varsity Boys Track- Doug Baker; Jr. High Boys Track -Nathan Pippert.
In other business the Board voted 7-0 to accept the evaluations of principals Rob Moore and Ken Cross. Doug Shalley then left the meeting and the Board voted 6-0 to extend the existing contract for superintendent Shalley for an additional year.
