Interim Supt. Gordon Thomas reported on the beginning of the second semester, student enrollment, school house renovation and the cafeteria audit; discussed the school safety and security grant and upcoming board training opportunities; and recognized board members for their service to the school district.
The trustees then went into executive session for 35 minutes before adjourning.
