Members of the Touchet School Board are Sandra Bradley, Robert Schaeffer, Mandy Thompson, Michael McCubbins and Darren Goble. With Bradley absent Thursday the board:
- CHEERLEADERS: Learned cheerleading has been reinstated after the activity was suspended last year.
- FINANCIAL: Learned the district ended the 2009-2010 school year with an ending fund balance of $30,000.
- BOND: Discussed bond refinancing with bond underwriters. Set a special meeting Oct. 14 to consider authorizing sale of the bonds. If interest rates are low Oct. 14, the board will probably vote to proceed, but if they have increased, the refinancing will be on hold. Estimated savings to taxpayers at current rates is $70,000 to $80,000.
- CONTRACT: Discussed contract with ESD 123 for fiscal services. The contract is for $25,000. Board members did not approve the contract, but will seek more information.
