Rush County Schools will accept a limited number of such requests and Aug. 5 is the late date interested persons may apply for a transfer.
Discussion was also held regarding the corporation’s budget process for next year.
Dr. Williams explained that a proposed budget will be advertised in the Rushville Republican Aug. 20 and again Aug. 27. A public hearing on the matter will be held Sept. 3 and the board will vote on the budget Oct. 1. It will then have to be approved by the state’s Department of Local Government Finance, which has the authority to lower proposed line items but not to increase them.
The board made several appointments including Sharon Holloway as the corporation’s treasurer, Jean Stanley as the assistant treasurer, treasurers for each of the schools in the system and local law firm Worth & Barada as the board attorney. This is the 40th consecutive year John Worth has served as the local school system’s attorney.
The board selected Prairie Farms to supply local schools with milk and dairy products during the upcoming school year. Pinkerton Oil was the successful bidder for diesel fuel supplies.
A memorandum of understanding with Head Start was approved. This will allow the program to operate at Milroy Elementary School.
The personnel report was approved as submitted, as were claims and payroll.
The next meeting of the RCS board is 7 p.m. Aug. 6 at the corporation’s administrative building located at 331 W. Eighth Street, Rushville.
