School Board Elects to Hold a Town Hall Forum

USD 480 will likely hold a town hall forum at the Depot.

The USD 480 Board of Education met for a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday night at the Education Service Center. The board met on Tuesday instead of Monday due to the Labor Day holiday.

There were only a few action items on the agenda. The board approved the waiver of a building rental fee for the ESC board room for an Autism College Class offered by Pittsburg State University on Tuesday nights for 09-10 school year.

The board also approved the bills, and the Kansas Learning Network, Memorandum of Understanding, which is a partnership between KSDE, Cross & Joftus and USD 480.

The board also discussed and voted on the wording of the special election question. The board had to decide on rather or not to use the language used on the original capital outlay resolution and the petition, or to use a shorter version. The board voted 7-0 to use the language used on the actual resolution and petition.

The board also discussed and agreed unanimously to hold a town hall meeting to discuss the upcoming election and any other concerns that the public may have with school district. The board instructed Central Office to get a town hall set up as soon as possible. The likely meeting place will be the Depot as the Chamber of Commerce has offered to help organize one. Board member Nick Hatcher even offered to bring ice cream if it will help get people to attend.

The board also voted to approve Classified Employment/Resignations/Transfers. The board also went to executive session for fifteen minutes to discuss non-elected personnel.

The Board of Education will next meet on Monday, September 21.
