Ninth grader expelled at BIC
The Buffalo Island Central School Board voted to expel a ninth grade student for the remainder of the school year due to violation of the school district's disciplinary policies when the board met March 9.
Directors discussed plans to select colors to be used in the new gymnasium. The board voted to use navy blue for all gymnasium seating, and agreed to select a committee to choose the color for tile, interior and exterior walls.
School Superintendent George Edd Holland and the board expressed appreciation for the Monette Housing Authority and director Barbara Suber for their donation of a 1994 Ford F150 pickup truck, complete with a Tommy-Lift. The district paid MHA $1 for the truck.
"This further demonstrates and confirms the support and cooperation the school has grown accustomed to when dealing with the Monette Housing Authority," Holland said.
The board discussed relocation of the existing bus shed and a location for the bus garage. Superintendent Holland was asked to gather prices on asphalt work needed in the district, including paved roads and parking areas.
Holland went on to update the board on legislative issues.
The next regularly scheduled director's meeting will be at 7 p.m. April 12 in the Superintendent's office.
