The Jamesport Tri-County Board of Education approved two bids and a fundraising request at its meeting Monday night.

The approved bids were from Westbrook and Company of Richmond for audit services for the 2018-2019 school year as well as from Generational Buildings to construct a bus barn.

The fundraising request was from the Booster Club for home baseball games, and the board also approved an Eagle Scout project of student Luke Lewis. It heard an update regarding the work release program and from students applying for entrance into the vocational program at Grand River Technical School.

Board members Heath Cook and Luke Skinner were sworn into office. The board elected officers with Heath Cook at the president, Luke Skinner as vice president, Jeremy Turner as treasurer, and Jennifer Simmons as secretary.

In an executive session, the board offered intent to employ to all non-certified staff and approved the list of extra duty assignments as presented by the administration. It also accepted resignations from paraprofessional LuAnn Rainey, middle school social studies and science teacher Mike Tipton, and fifth-grade teacher Rachel Payne. Rainey’s resignation is due to retirement.

The board offered teaching contracts to Kassidy Stark for high school business and Chris Wever for middle school social studies and special education.
