Business grant received by district
A $100,000 Schools to Careers grant has been awarded to the district.
Supt. James White said the district wrote the grant for more than $200,000. However, he was excited about the amount received, which does not require any matching funds.
"That's pretty exciting news," White said.
The grant will be used for business education in the district.
Roof bid approved
The board approved a $58,000 bid from Prime Roofing, of Johnson County, to roof the gymnasium and three-story building of Baldwin Elementary School. The work should be complete prior to the start of school.
