Posted on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 1:26 pm

The Bowling Green R-1 School District Board of Education gathered Monday night at 6:30 p.m. for their regular meeting. Among topics discussed was that of three resignations and possible upcoming projects.

President Scott Smith called the meeting to order and asked for roll call. Cindy Browning was absent from the meeting.

The Board unanimously approved the consent agenda, including the resignations of Lynsie Penrod from High School English, Emily Harrelson from middle school student council, and Darrell Lucas as bus driver.

In the financial summary as of April 30, Superintendent Darin Powell noted that the district may have to replace a few of the light poles at the football stadium, and advised that the district proceed with caution on the reserve funds, in case they need to be used for the project.

With no discussion in the public information form or old business, the Board moved forward to new business, noting the June work session will take place on June 16 at 6:30 p.m. The June board meeting will take place on Thursday, June 26, also at 6:30 p.m.

Also in new business, the Board unanimously approved the seeking of an assistant middle school softball and volleyball coach for the upcoming school year, the current school year’s auditor to be Wade Stables, and the declaration of surplus property of four old scoreboards.

Powell noted that the district will need to approve several MSBA policy revisions, new policies, and rescind of policies, but he moved to table that discussion until the June board meeting for review.

Following a brief discussion in reports on the PAT program, professional development, and high school procedural of valuations, the board moved to adjourn to executive session at 7:02 p.m.
