BIC board goes quickly through light agenda

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

The Buffalo Island Central School Board quickly went through a short agenda at its regular meeting Monday, Nov. 17.

BIC superintendent Gaylon Taylor went through the district's account balances. The board then unanimously approved the district's financial statements.

The board then passed a resolution for contract disclosures for Patricia Duffle, Melinda Wells and Cindy Lancaster.

Taylor recognized teacher Jae Glass who has been chosen by Arkansas State University as a fellow for its summer writing program. He also recognized BIC East librarian Shelly Hurst who has received a $3,000 Dollar General Literacy grant. The district has also gotten a $762 Donors Choose grant that will bring author Carla Killough McClafferty to the school's campuses to speak with students and share about writing. Taylor also recognized Nancy Spencer who got a $1,400 Donors Choose grant for classroom technology. He also recognized the district for its high scores in literacy and math in the 10-12 grades.

Taylor told the board the district is getting bids for work that will be done on the concession stand at the baseball fields. He said there is $15,000 budgeted for the project to repair the roof, put metal siding on the building, plumbing work and replace the window.

In other business board member Scott Colbert volunteered to be the board representative at the next community meeting, which was held Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the BIC West campus.

Before adjourning board members agreed to change their meeting for December to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 9.
