USD 480 Learns State Cuts May Not Affect Them
11/23/2009

The USD 480 Board of Education met Monday night at the Education Service Center for a regularly scheduled meeting.

There was some good news that came from Business Director Jerry Clay who informed the board that despite the upcoming state cuts that Governor Mark Parkinson will be making that it likely will not affect Liberal due to the amount and make-up of students. Clay said the district will likely break even when the cuts are made.

The board approved the following action items at the meeting. New board members Nick Hatcher and Reid Petty were given the go ahead to attend the National School Board Convention next April in Chicago if they so choose. Neither Hatcher nor Petty has made a decision on if they will go or not. The board also approved the purchase of eight new copiers, furniture for the new addition to Liberal High School, copy paper, and 90 LCD monitors, which will help save energy.

District Energy Consultant Brent Evans was also in attendance and gave a report on how the district has been saving money through saving energy, and said they hope to be able to continue to learn more and save even more.

The board also approved Judy Williams permission to start a FCCLA Cooking School. Williams will teach the special class,with a small fee being charged to participate in the class.The class will start December 12 with a holiday themed session. The board also renewed a contract with the Southwest Kansas Area Cooperative District 613, which provides services for six students with visual impairments.

Monday's meeting was not televised due to technical difficulties. The Board of Education will next meet on Monday, December 7. It will be their final meeting of the fall semester.
