North Clay school board Thursday set a special meeting to discuss possible budget cuts.

The special meeting will begin at 6:30pm on Thursday, March 7 at the Unit office in Louisville.  The state's lack of funding for local districts will also be a topic.

North Clay board members approved the implementation of a Student Worker Assistance Program for this summer.  The program allows for any high school student to participate in the workplace at North Clay to work off any athletic participation fees or parking fees for the upcoming school year.  A high school student may also work off fees for younger siblings not able to participate in the program due to their age.  More information will be presented to parents and to each eligible student.

The Board decided against seeking bids on a new propane school bus and to instead complete purchase of a used propane bus with about 5,000 miles of use.  In personnel moves, the North Clay board accepted the resignation of Steve Burgener as a teacher as of the end of the school year, but hired Burgener as head high school softball coach for this season only dependent on having sufficient turnout by students.  The Board also accepted the resignation of Terry McKnelly as custodian as of the end of this month and accepted the resignation of DeDe McElravy as athletic director as of the end of the school year.  The Board hired Jami Lewis as Executive Administrative Assistant Trainee and Ben Farleigh as Executive Administrative Assistant/Bookkeeper Trainee as of February 25.

North Clay Board members renewed a one-year contract with Lifetouch for photos, discussed current and future lawn care for the District with Superintendent Monty Aldrich to contact the current provider to discuss changes.
