Pomeroy School District Board members are Paul Ruark, Lori Slaybaugh, Steve Carlson, Bart Gingerich and Ed Sullivan. With all present Thursday the board:
- FACILITIES: Learned the project management team for the junior-senior high school renovation met Wednesday. The team looked at drawings, discussed "wants vs. needs" and the impact having "wants" would make on the budget. Also discussed were issues related to working on the entire building in one phase. Issues include food service, sports activities, and places for classes for 170 students. If the project is done in one phase, it will create a lower cost, superintendent Kim Spacek said.
- ENROLLMENT/STAFFING: Discussed matters related to enrollment and staffing, including kindergarten and sixth grade and junior-senior high school course schedule. There may be two sections of kindergarten, and other grades will each have one teacher through sixth grade. There are 12 junior-senior high teachers.
- BUDGET: Discuss 2010-2011 budget, including items that will be placed back into to budget that were cut last year. The afterschool program crossing-guard advisor, a new motor pool car and update of the district website are among items that will be reinstated. The budget will be finalized at the board's July 28 meeting.
- FISCAL AGENT: After hearing a presentation by Linda McKeirnan, decided to pursue the district's becoming the fiscal agent for the Community Health and Prevention Advisory Board. Previously Human Services was the fiscal agent.
