School Board met April 21, 2020


April 29, 2020

The full school board met along with guests on Google Meet for the school board meeting on April 21. They also met on Monday, April 27, but that meeting took place after the printing deadline of Monday morning, therefore, we were not able to cover that meeting till next week’s Mountaineer.

During old business, they showed pictures of the upgrade to the storage room at the FE Miley Grade School. This was the former stage area. The project came $3,500 under budget. The pictures showed a well-organized area with lots of room for storage.

Travis Bauman shared under new business that the new cameras will be up in the gym and the football field before any graduation ceremony, which may take place at Big Sandy High school. He said it was necessary to be careful how they approached the placing of cameras due to new laws that needed to be adhered to. The laws have been put into place because of the distance learning now happening around the country.

Discussion about high-school graduation took place, with no decision until after the Governor’s directives were given and now after the school board meeting of April 27
