Highlights of the meeting included:

Accepted the reirement resignations from Jeanne Titus, Elementary teacher, and RJ Swartz, Custodian. Both are effective June 1.

Approved a one-year disability leave for high school science teacher Anthony Mulholland.

Approved asphalt paving of the gravel area of the HS/MS parking lot. This does not include the bus parking area. No general funds will be used to pay for this. Money will come from the sale of the former school property.
