The Princeton Board of Education has given its permission for the school district to apply for a U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development grant to help replace the flooring in the Stacy Center gymnasium.

Superintendent Terry Mayfield said the project is expected to cost around 50-thousand dollars. He said a grant of 17-thousand to 18-thousand dollars is to be sought. Mayfield said the Stacy Center board previously applied for a grant for the project but did not qualify because it's a lessee, so the school district will seek the grant.

Mayfield said it's hoped the flooring project can be done this summer after a bidding process.

The Princeton Board has offered teaching contracts to Nathan Mack for Junior High and High School Science and Nathan Copling for High School Social Studies.
Both are to be first year teachers. Mack was to receive a degree this spring from Graceland University at Lamoni. Copling has a degree from the University of Missouri at St. Louis.

Copling also was offered a contract to be a junior high school assistant softball coach.

The Princeton Board also offered contracts to Shanin Parks to be a cross country coach and Rachel Stricken to be a high school assistant softball coach. Shanin Parks was employed last month as a junior high school math instructor. Ms. Stricken, who's from Princeton, is not a district employee.

The Princeton Board approved three teachers to do summer maintenance work---Justin Collins, Slade Kenagy, and Scott Ussery. A Princeton student, Jessica Alderson, was approved to work in the office this summer.

The Princeton School District has been told by its current health insurance provider that rates are going up about 24 percent. Princeton Superintendent Terry Mayfield said the carrier will ask underwriters if anything can be done to lower the increase. Mayfield said he's also seeking quotes from other carriers. He said he should be able to make a recommendation at next month's Board of Education meeting.

Superintendent Mayfield said he believes it's important to the staff that the district try to maintain paying 100 percent of the cost of health insurance. He said if the district is to maintain that benefit, it may have to consider plan options and increasing deductibles to maintain affordability.
