Spickard School Administrator, Mike Garrett, says the Spickard District has spent nearly $10,000 in additional costs for propane since its propane contract was dropped by a supplier.
Garrett, late last month, said United Propane Gas of Puducah, Kentucky discontinued providing propane to the Spickard School and other commercial customers because of a lack of supplies. Garrett, late last month, said the disruption to the Spickard District would be until after April 1st.
Since the disruption, the Spickard School District has been getting propane from MFA, but at what Garrett called a truck daily price.
In other news from the Spickard Board of Education meeting, Kendall Neinhuser will be assuming a vacant position on the board effective next month. Nienhuser was 1 of 3 persons who filed as candidates for 3 seats to fill in April on the Spickard Board of Education. Since the number of candidates equaled the number of positions to fill, no Spickard Board of Education election is needed in April.
Make-up days in the Spickard District because of time missed from bad weather are March 14th, April 17th, April 21st, and May 22nd.
A closed session of the Spickard Board of Education also was held regarding personnel and students. The discussion included potential administrators. There was no announcement afterward.
The Spickard Board, last month, accepted Garrett's resignation effective at the end of his contract on June 30th.
