Monday’s school board meeting had a light agenda

The recommendation to adopt the Resolution for a Bond Election for the Laurel High School and Elementary School District was moved to a discussion item in order to examine some of the specific language in the deferred maintenance section. Superintendent Linda Filpula said there was an unforeseen delay in the processes because the “geo study isn’t done yet due to a personal matter from the property owner.” She said she hopes to have it ready by August 14.
Business Manager Donnie McVee said Aug.30 is the last day to approve the bond resolution because it has to be declared 70 days before the Nov. 7 general election.
The Board also approved to ratify the Student Resource Officer contracts for the 2017-18 school year. Filpula said the district’s partnership with the City of Laurel has been in place since 2001
Other discussions and actions taken:
• Laurel School District Athletic Director Roger Heimbigner was approved as the Title IX Coordinator for the Laurel School District.
• It was reported that every classroom in the district is now hard wired for wifi.
• The updated Organizational Chart and major job responsibilities list for the 2017-18 school year was approved.
• The updated transportation handbook was approved.
