NCOE School Board gets update on state payments for transportation

The NCOE Board of Education held their meeting Wednesday evening in the Superintendent’s office.  The minutes and the bills for the month were approved as presented.

Mr. Vollman told the Board that some money has been received for transportation and special education funds for Fiscal Year 2016.  However, the state is still deficient in the transportation funds for Fiscal Year 17 amounting to $144,112.00 owed to the school district.  The Board agreed to transfer $72,491.10 from working cash to the transportation fund during the meeting.

Mr. Haley and Mrs. Carter both reported attendance for Booth and the high school as 93% for December.  The FFA Alumni Auction will be this upcoming Saturday at Booth and they are expecting a good turnout.  Mrs. Carter reported that student enrollment is up from 114 to 131 students at Booth compared to this time last year.

On February 2, a blood drive will be held at the high school.  Homecoming is taking place in February as well.  The game will be on the 17th and the dance will be on the evening of the 18th.

The teachers will make-up their teacher in-service day on February 17th with early student dismissal that day.  The original date on January 13 was cancelled due to weather and school being closed.

The Board approved the firm bid for gasoline and diesel products from Wabash Valley through January 2018.

The Board voted to approve Dr. Cliff Karnes to continue serving as the sponsor of the Senior Trip.  Board Member, Scott Riggs, has volunteered to coach the NCOE high school baseball team this season since the district received no applicants for the position.  The Board voted and approved Mr. Riggs to do so.

The Board accepted the resignations of Angel Maloney and Jackie Ramsey.  The Board hired Cecily Attebery as a personal aide at Booth.

In other business the Board:

–  Had the first reading of updated Board Policies.
