The Jamesport Tri-County Board of Education has directed the district's administration to seek a school bus to purchase for use on a route.
The bus is expected to be around a 59 passenger vehicle and replace an existing one.
The Board tabled discussion of in-town bus stops.
The Tri-County Board approved the purchase of new varsity boys and girls basketball uniforms. The cost is $2800.
The Board approved FFA students attending the National Convention at Louisville, Kentucky. No district funds are to be used. The national FFA Convention is October 30th through November 2nd.
The Tri-County Board approved 2 fundraising requests. 1 of them allows the junior class to pump gas at Hy-Vee at Chillicothe on a date that's not yet been determined.
Also approved was a request from the Student Council to hold a haunted house in the old gymnasium October 26th.
A less scary area for younger children will operate from 5 o'clock until 6:30. A haunted maze for other persons is from 7 until 9 o'clock.
Admission for the Halloween activities on October 26th at the Jamesport school is $2 for children ages 1 to 10 and $3 for those above 10.
The Tri-County Board assigned items as surplus property. They include old light fixtures from the gymnasium and various tables, desks, and file cabinets from storage. They'll be assigned a price for which the public can purchase the items.
The Tri-County Board approved placing $100,000 from a matured Certificate of Deposit into the general fund. Another $150,000 goes into a 3 month CD, to be consolidated when state and federal funds are received. The district says it used the same procedure last year to maintain a consistent cash flow.
