Several extra-duty assignments were made for next school year. Among changes, Heather Johnson will be the head varsity softball coach, Wade Hall will be the head varsity girls basketball coach, and Slade Kenagy the head varsity girls track coach.

The Princeton Board approved a revised itinerary for the senior class trip. The class will be going to the Legends Shopping Center at Kansas City, Kansas for a 1 day trip.

The Board approved a bid from Power Lawn Care and Landscaping for mowing the school campus at the cost of $725 a mowing. However, if the price of gas rises above
$3.80 a gallon, the charge increases by $25 dollars a mowing.

The Princeton Board approved a bid from Lockridge, Constant, and Conrad for auditing services. The cost next fiscal year is $5,150. The charge increases by $200 in the 2nd and 3rd years of the contract.

Officers for the Princeton Board of Education in the coming year are President Aaron Franklin, Vice President Rick Ellsworth, Secretary Ron Parsons, and Treasurer Dirk Schwartzkopf.

Princeton Superintendent, Terry Mayfield, has told the Board of Education it needs to begin considering the District's debt service levy. The bond issue to construct the
elementary school originally was set to pay off in 2026. However, refinancing to take advantage of lower interest rates has meant the payoff now takes place in 2018---8 years earlier than originally planned. Superintendent Mayfield also said it means a savings of over $700,000 to District taxpayers.

Superintendent Mayfield said the Board has the options of letting the debt service levy lapse once the bonds are paid, and developing a long range plan that would include projects for capital improvements and upgrades to current facilities and ask voters to pass a no tax increase bond issue. Mayfield said the no tax increase bond issue would basically give the District authority to extend the debt service levy to pay for the projects. He said depending on the cost of the projects, the actual debt service levy could go down if it is extended.

On another topic, Princeton Superintendent Mayfield said Governor Nixon's announcement last Thursday that he's withholding $15.6 million from the Foundation formula for the current fiscal year puts school boards and superintendents in a difficult position. He said that position is having to make budget cuts in the short time remaining in the current fiscal year.

Superintendent Mayfield said the Governor's withholding is attributed to a supplemental appropriations bill approved by the General Assembly failing to provide enough money to make up for revenue shortfall. The shortfall was attributed to the amount of lottery and riverboat gaming revenue in the current fiscal year. Superintendent Mayfield said the General Assembly approved $22 million for elementary and secondary education in its supplemental appropriations bill, but the Governor requested $44 million.
