The Carlisle County Board of Education had their regular monthly meeting on Thursday, April 12. Those in attendance were Superintendent Jay Simmons, board members Tiffany McCuan, Scott McIntyre, Steve Draper, Brian Grogan and John Matt Fourshee, Rachel Bowles, and Chris Woods of KY Publishing.
Board Chairman Brian Grogan called the meeting to order. The architect that was involved with the new elementary school addressed the board, and said that any problems with the school should be brought to her attention. A list is going to be made every two weeks, and any problems will be reported to Codell Construction, and they will be fixed. After school is out, the architect is going to do a walk through of the new school, and inform Codell of any problems. The building has a one year warranty on the construction work, and various warranties of different time lengths on many of the items in the school, such as heating and cooling units and construction materials. The school held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday, April 15, at 2:00 p.m. for the public to tour the new school.
Jay Simmons gave the superintendent's report. He stated that the next board meeting will be a budget discussion, and the school board had to reschedule the meeting to May 8 because Rachel Bowles will be out of town on the regular meeting date for May. Simmons also informed the board that Keith Crider has submitted his letter of retirement.
The board accepted the previous meeting's minutes, financial reports and payment of bills with a motion from Draper and second from McIntyre.
The board voted to go into executive session concerning a student discipline issue, then returned to open session. They then voted to adjourn.
