|The Tri-County School District of Jamesport has obtained 45 desk-top computers through a U.S.D.A. program. The free computers will be distributed throughout the district. The Tri-County Board of Education, last week, approved a change in the school calendar to reduce two days of classes from full to HALF days.|
Those days will be September 28th and February 15th, and will allow time for professional development of staff.
The board has approved fund-raisers for the Tri-County PTO, junior class, student council, and senior class. In addition, the board reviewed a request by the National Honor Society to participate in MoDOT's "Adopt a Highway Program", in which trash is collected along road. More information will be sought, with Highway 6 or Route F proposed for clean-up.
The board listened to a preliminary proposal for the Tri-County senior class to take a trip to Florida next May. No action was taken. A brief closed session was held regarding personnel, with no announcement afterwards.
