Following last month's shooting at a Connecticut grade school, officials at RTHS talked last night about additional security in the building. The board met in executive session as part of the discussion centered around their emergency plan which is currently in place.
Superintendent Jamie Craven said that his proposal to the board would cost the district around $15,000. It will include a buzz-in system at the front door area.
Craven said the new security measures will be phased in during a period of time.
The board voted last night on how they would spend the additional money for the district if the 1 cent county wide sales tax issue was approved by voters in April. The money would be used to decrease the district's debt and tax rate.
School officials also heard a report from financial advisor Linda Matkowski. Craven said there are 3 major concerns facing the district which includes the lack of state aid.
He did say that the district does have solid fund balances.
The board approved the resignation last night of Adam Turner as Bass Fishing Coach.
