SCHOOL BOARD VOTES TO CHANGE POLICY RELATING TO EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITES

At the meeting of the Marshall School Board on Monday, November 25, the board held a discussion on student participation in extracurricular activities.

According to minutes from the meeting, current policy states a student must enroll in the district and register for a minimum of two credit-bearing, seat-time courses. The administration asked the policy be changed to three credit-bearing, seat-time courses, which was approved by the board.

Also, Saline County Career Center Director Callie Dobbins said due to the cost of the LPN program, SCCC is asking for a $1,000 increase for next year- making the tuition $12,500. It also was approved by the board.

The board gave its approval to a bid of $23,827.28 from Converged Technology Services for the purchase and installation of a door-access control system for the new wing at the Spainhower Elementary School. It was one of three bids received.

In other news, the board approved filing times for board seats during regular business hours from 8 a.m. on Tuesday, December 17, 2019, to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. There are three three-year terms available- seats currently held by Brad Guthrey, Kathy Green and Tim Schulte.
