Area School Board meetings set for Monday, July 11th


July 9th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Four area Boards of Education will meet Monday evening in our immediate listening area. For two of the Boards, it will be their last meeting, because their districts have reorganized into one district.

The first meeting at 5:30-p.m. is for the Griswold School Board, who will meet in the Central Office Board room. On their agenda, is action on: old board policies; Resolutions pertaining to the Revenue Purpose Statement, and the board election; Sharing agreement with cities; approval of bids for the bakery, dairy, snow removal and sanitation, as well as other, administrative matters, such as the appointment of a Board Secretary, Treasurer, Business Manager, and School Attorney.

At 6-p.m., the C-and-M School Board will meet for the last time in the CAM High School Media Center. Last September, voters in the Anita and Cumberland-Massena Community School Districts overwhelmingly chosen to reorganize the two districts into one. For nearly eight-years, the districts have participated in a whole grade sharing agreement, sharing students and programs, and they have shared athletic activities for many years beyond that. All the while, they had maintained separate administrative teams and Boards of Education.

During the C&M Board’s meeting, they’ll act on a Transfer of Quit Claim Deeds for property and Transfer of Vehicle Titles. At 6:20-p.m., the Anita School District’s Board of Education will meet in the CAM High School Media Center, to handle similar administrative matters. And, at 6:45-p.m., the combined CAM School Board will hold its regular meeting, during which they will appoint a Board Secretary/Treasurer, School Attorney and conduct other administrative business.

The CAM Board will also discuss and/or act on Bread and Milk bids, curriculum changes, a School Resources Officer (SRO) agreement, a resignation, contracts and the 2011-2012 school fees.
