Bowie School Board to meet Monday

Bowie School Trustees will consider moving forward with five improvement projects when they meet at 5:30 p.m. on March 28.

Last month the board directed the superintendent to get more specific cost estimates on extending a sidewalk at the elementary, parking lot chip and seal at the junior high, campus video surveillance systems, junior high auditorium sound and lighting and intermediate school sound panels.

Funding for these projects would come from the remaining bond funds which total about $650,000 as of Feb. 19.

Numerous annual topics will be discussed including the 2016-17 school calendar year, teacher bereavement leave, the instructional materials allotment and board policy manual update.

Teacher contracts and other personnel considerations, which will be reviewed in executive session, along with the junior high principal position. Amy Murphey, BJH principal, has been offered a position in the Nocona School District, but as of Friday she had not tendered her resignation to the superintendent.

Nine bids on properties struck off the tax rolls will be examined for board action.

Salli Page and Ed Cordero will provide an overview of the high school career and technical education and veterinary technician programs.
