The Trenton R-9 Board of Education last evening approved a memorandum of understanding with two other entities which commits the school district to financing its share of improvements to the Johnson softball field.

The agreement previously was approved by the North Central Missouri College Board of Trustees. Each is to pay nearly 28 thousand dollars $27,997.50) for renovations of the field. Trenton Park Board has accepted bids from the same two companies that made similar improvements to the Griffin ball field this year.

While voting in favor of the agreement on sharing the costs, R-9 Board member David Whitaker expressed the hope the Johnson field project can be completed without delays like those experienced with the Griffin field work. Board members noted plans call for work at Johnson Field to begin on or about October 21st providing what some considered a “head start” toward having that field ready for thetwo softball programs to use next year.


The R-9 board also approved a 25 year Ebbe concession stand lease agreement with the Park Department. It'll be operated by the Booster club with proceeds to the softball program during their season. Some specifications include use of Coca Cola products, purchase other products locally whenever possible, and no cooking inside the concession stand.

The Trenton school board heard a presentation from Middle School Principal Dustin Jenkerson about an idea to academically help students with failing grades.

Jenkerson was authorized to write the plan and present it to board members.


Jenkerson explained the plan would be designed to hold students, as he put it, “more accountable” for the grades they receive. He noted 17 middle school students (from grades five through eight) received two or more “F's” at the end of last semester.

But each was allowed to advance to the next grade level without any intervention. He
told the school board retention is not the answer. Jenkerson is proposing adding an
academic lab at the middle school for those students with two or more “F's.” He's also
proposing mandatory summer school if a middle school student has four or more “F's.”

Superintendent Becky Albrecht said she supports the concept and would recommended
locally funding a teaching position there regardless whether a federal grant is obtained.

The R-9 board approved 260 dollars in annual interest from the Jewett Norris account and Rose Hoover funds to be given to the Grundy county library. Mrs. Albrecht thanks Green Hills Community Action Agency for donating about 25 hundred dollars worth of supplies to Trenton R-9. Kristi Davis recognized the Buzzard family for donating 14-hundred dollars for special education staff to purchase three I-pads and gift cards to download apps.

All three Trenton attendance buildings will participate in an Earthquake drill October 17th at 10:17.

Classes will be dismissed early October 17th and 18th at Trenton. Parent teacher conferences are the 17th and staff professional development training is on the 18th. T-H-S staff member Kay Moore receives a “counselor of the year” award November 3rd at the fall conference in Osage Beach. MSBA fall regional meeting is November 6th at the Chula School.
